Research demonstrates benefits of early exposure to multiple languages. Our Greek School program be- gins at age 3!

Even if you do not speak Greek, it is a wonderful language to introduce your child to. There are countless words in the English language that are of Greek origin. Exposure to Greek will assist your child with all con- tent areas, especially with Math and Science as they progress through school.

Our Greek school is open to students of other communities as well as to those of the greater community.The St. Vasilios Greek School has functioned continuously since the founding of our parish. The Greek School is the oldest educational program within the church. The school offers the youth of our community knowledge of the Greek language, a love for the Orthodox Faith, and an appreciation for the culture and his- tory of the Greek people. Our students build strong bonds with their classmates that last a lifetime.We will have an open registration this year, you can visit the church website www.stvasilios.org to download the reg- istration form and bring it to the office at your convenience.Greek School consists of 8 grades Introductory 3-4 year olds through 6th, open to students age 3 through 7th grade in American School.

Please note children must be 3 years old by September 1st in order to enroll in the Introductory Class.

Children age 3 can enroll in the Introductory class (3-4 year olds) and students entering Kindergarten can en- roll in the Pre-School class. The Introductory class will meet every Wednesday. Pre-K through 6th grade will meet Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 3:30-5:00.

We are flexible if you cannot commit to 3 days a week. We have a number of students involved in other after school activities that attend 1-2 times a week.

Our highly qualified and experienced teaching staff comes together to provide our community’s children with knowledge of their heritage and Greek language. The staff adjusts the curriculum to the needs and abilities of our children who come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Our curriculum consists of conversational skills, culture, reading, religion, writing and dance. Our main focus is conversational skills and we spend a great amount of class time focusing on real life situations students can relate to.

We also offer preparation to students for the Ellinomatheia Exam. The Ellinomatheia is a certificate of attain- ment in Modern Greek and is an official certificate by the Greek Ministry of Education given to candidates who successfully complete oral and written exams in Greek. There are six levels (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2)

The A1 exam is for students ages 8-12 and we encourage for all of our Greek School students to take this ex- am prior to completing our Greek School program.

In addition to this, students perform dance at a number of church and city events throughout the school year.

The first day of Greek School is scheduled for Wednesday, September 12th we will meet in the Greek School at 3:30 and head to the Church for Agiasmo.

We will have a brief meeting following Agiamso and ask for parents to be in attend- ance.
