The curriculum for children's classes focuses on fundamentals of the language as well as giving the children the ability to converse in Modern Greek at least at a basic level. Furthermore, the school gives children the opportunity to learn about the Greek Orthodox culture by marking important dates that occur during the school year and discussing them with children. These include OXI Day, Christmas, Ta Fota, the pre-lenten Carnaval celebrations, the Annunciation and Greek Independence Day, and Pascha. The children also learn Greek Christmas Carols (ta Kalanta) and memorize poems that are recited during the Annunciation and Independence Day celebration. One of the primary objectives of the school is to give children a strong and positive identity of their heritage and the ability to make it part of their lives so they can pass it on to the next generation.
Tuition for one year is $250 per child. Families with more than one child pay $225 for the second child and $200 for each additional child. Tuition does not include the cost of books which are to be purchased through Papaloizos publications and includes an online platform with games exercises and videos.
Adult classes are offered for beginners as well as more advanced students of Greek. The adult classes focus on the basics of the alphabet, grammar, and the ability to use it properly in conversation.
Classes are offered on Sunday from 12 Noon to 1:45 pm with a 15- minute break. If, however, the above schedule is not convenient for you, there is the possibility of private tutoring.

Being exposed to the Greek language is a special opportunity. It connects us more directly to the Greek culture and to a history of a nation which has played as great a role as any in shaping the world as we know it today. Greek has been spoken for over 5000 years by many millions of people; it is the language of our ancestors, our Church fathers, and we offer you the opportunity to join us in learning it as well. Greek is at the root of most western languages including one third of words in the English language - and probably well over half the words that may appear on college entrance exams.
