The Greek School meets each Tuesday evening from 5:00pm to
8:15pm from September to June. The curriculum of the Greek
School consists of a well-rounded program of subjects designed for
each age, grade and skill level. Each grade level builds on previous
work as students progress in their skills. A typical Tuesday evening
session includes instruction in all of the following:
Reading and Writing (Approx. 90 mins.)
Speaking (Approx. 30 mins.)
Culture, Geography, History & Mythology (Approx. 30 mins.)
Dancing (Approx. 30 mins.)
The School calendar also includes special events where students
perform plays, recite poems, sing songs, demonstrate dance and
display their crafts and artwork to the community. Among the
special events and holidays celebrated are: Oxi Day (Oct), Christmas
(Dec), Greek Independence Day (Mar) and Graduation (Jun).

Each Tuesday evening session includes a 15 minute dinner break
The P.T.O. provides hot, fresh delivered pizza from a
local pizzeria and serves drinks which are available for purchase as
a convenience to parents and students who may not wish to bring food.
Students’ educational experiences are supplemented by activities
and social events. Again, the P.T.O. is largely responsible for
planning and funding trips, dances and other activities. Past
activities include trips to Ellis Island, Statue of Liberty, Onassis
Center, Metropolitan Museum of Art and Greek restaurants.
The Greek School is fully supported by school tuition and P.T.O.
fundraising activities. Tuition and P.T.O. funds support only the
Greek School. The Church, through its members, pays for,
provides and maintains the facilities and vital services used by the
Greek School – services such as heating, utilities, housekeeping and
even winter snow removal in preparation for our Tuesday evening
classes. It is for this reason that Greek School families are required to
sustain their Church membership in good standing each calendar year.
We invite you to join us and learn more about our school and
see how the experience of a Greek School program can enrich
the lives of your loved ones.
