Persian Cultural Center Inc. / Iranian Community School was founded in 1986. As a non-profit, non-political, educational entity we are dedicated to the language, culture, history, literature, music, and art of Iran for the young and adult residents of the greater Washington DC Metropolitan area.Through the untiring efforts of founder Mrs. Deyhimi, the Iranian Community School started its activity in spring of 1986. The first Persian language classes were given in her home with just two students.

The enrollment quickly grew to six, then sixteen after just six months of classes. She then moved the classes from her home to Pimmit Hill Center of Fairfax County, then to St. Luke Church in McLean and then to Emmaus United Church of Christ in Vienna and finally to our current location in 311 Maple Avenue in Vienna. The school has greatly expanded its activities to meet the needs of its students.
