Greek School-Afternoon Student Classes
Our afternoon Greek School classes for students are on Tuesdays, from 4:30-6:30pm. All students are expected to attend for the entire 2 hours of instruction. Our first class is on September 12th.
Students should be in the first grade of their regular school to enter the Level K Class. Occasionally, we have students join us at another level and we will accommodate them accordingly based on their individual ability and needs.

Are you an adult interested in learning Modern Greek? Our Assumption Greek School offers an online learning program tailored to adults. Students should have a basic knowledge of Greek to enter the class.
Our curriculum consists of 30 one-hour classes offered on Monday evenings. We are following the “Ellinika sto pi kai fi 1” (Modern Greek in No Time) textbook for teaching Modern Greek as a foreign language, to learners who wish to acquire the first level of the language. Our current group of students worked on basic Greek Grammar skills and are looking forward to enhancing their knowledge in the coming year.
Please contact Paraskevi at email@example.com with any questions!
Philosophy of our Program
Our Greek School program focuses on listening, speaking, reading, and writing. After completing our program, our goal is for our students to:
Read and understand passages of texts
Engage in conversations about themselves (age, grade, interests)
Develop fluency in the Greek language
Write a letter to a family member or friend
Write about something that is important to them (favorite food, holiday, movie, sport, etc)
Learn about important landmarks in Greece
Understand important holidays and customs in Greece and how we celebrate them in the United States
Participate in cultural events (OXI day, March 25th, etc)
Students may have the opportunity to take the Comprehensive Exam in Modern Greek after all levels have been successfully completed. Students must be at least thirteen years old in order to take the exam and, in some instances, it provides foreign language credit at the high school level (it was formerly the NYS Regents Exam).
The Assumption Church Afternoon Greek School follows all guidelines set by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, and is committed to providing an excellent education in all aspects of the Greek language. We will continue with the curriculum and series of books from Papaloizos Publications and supplement with materials published by the Department of Greek Education of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese.
