Berkeley Russian School — Klyaksa (Ink Spot) — is a non-profit Russian immersion school offering challenging academic classes for students aged 3 to 16. Our highly qualified and experienced teachers deliver classes tailored to meet the individual needs of each student. The school offers several levels of Russian Language, Literature and Math — along with a wide array of extracurricular programs, including Art, Art History, Chess, and Music appreciation. Students excel academically while mastering the Russian language.

On Sundays we offer a unique program for children aged 3 and older. Classes for the younger children are developmentally appropriate and form the foundation of language learning and academic success in future years.

In addition, we are now offering adult conversation classes, a challenging and fun opportunity for adults to learn the Russian language.

Over the years we have developed into an active and mutually inspiring community of teachers, parents and students. Come join us!Download Enrollment Form
