  • Registration Information
  • One Sunday school session lasts 10 months, however, during the summer we may ask for children to come on Sundays to prepare for plays for big functions such as Ratha Yathra and Krsna Janamastami.
  • Registration fees are $20.00  per child every year.  Any new registration is allowed in the middle of a session.We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity for your children. Many of our other ISKCON temples have had great success with their Sunday school program, finding that the classes strengthen and reinforce Vedic upbringing. The students develop positive, spiritual friendships with other children and learn how to make Krishna Consciousness a part of their everyday life.
