The Khalsa School Sewadaars thrives to work cohesively and establish an educative path for the young Khalsa. The objectives of the Khalsa School are in-line with raising our next generation Sikh Children with wealth and strength of Gurmat values.

The Education programs are focused on two broader categories:
1. Teaching Gurmukhi as a Language so that our Children can read and understand Gurbani from Guru Granth Sahib Jee.
2. Teaching Sikh History and Gurmat to enrich the minds and souls of our young children. Gurmat Classes foster Sikhi way of life through practicing Rehat Maryada in our daily lives.

Students represent the older segment of Khalsa School and organize regular events throughout the year, such as the Vaisakhi Keertan Darbaar, Sikh Children’s Day, and Gurpurab Celebrations.
