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.

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.
