The Tamil language is a valuable asset for everyone who speaks Tamil and it defines our unique cultural identity on the globe.

Maryland Tamil Academy(Volunteer-based, non-profit (501-(c)(3) Organization for Tamil Education) is dedicated to teaching the Tamil language to children in Maryland, USA.  Volunteer-run, the school is based in Maryland serving Montgomery and Frederick Counties.

The school’s primary activities revolve around our weekly classes, which are held on every Friday from 7-9 P.M.

MTA in-person classes are canceled for FRI, 13, 20 & 27 of Mar-2020.

Considering the heightened awareness around the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and for the health & safety of parents and kids of our community, in alignment with MCPS & FCPS, we are canceling our in-person Tamil Class for Fri, 13, 20 & 27 of Mar 2020 for both the locations (Frederick and Montgomery county).

MTA board is working with the teachers to use other options like Google Classroom, Google Hangout, and other means to continue working with students/parents to continue educating our language. Class teachers from each classroom will reach out to the parents to find feasible and possible ways of providing lesson instructions and homework assignments. We request the parents to cooperate and work with the teachers to handle the current challenging times. Please extend your cooperation and support with patience in attending the online classes regularly and help your kids complete the class homework. Teachers and volunteers will take attendance and status for homework completion for all the kids during the online class.

We request all the parents and children of our community to stay vigilant.
