Greek Afternoon School
Kindergarten – 6th grade, Total Current Enrollment: 92
The Holy Trinity Greek Afternoon School was established in 1935. It offers two educational programs for children 5-12 years old, from kindergarten through sixth grade. It has a current enrollment of 92 students taught by 9 well-trained educators.
The two educational programs offered by the Greek Afternoon School are:
- The Standard Program (SP)
- The Oral Communication Program (OCP)
The Standard Program (SP): This program offers classes twice a week and aims at developing and accelerating all four Greek linguistic skills of the participants: comprehension of oral and written communication and production of oral and written communication.The students are also taught Religion, Greek Mythology, History, Geography and Culture, and learn to dance and sing traditional Greek dances, hymns and songs and proudly participate in the celebration of the anniversary of the Greek National Holidays and honor with their presence the biggest Greek Orthodox Christian celebrations of our Greek Orthodox Faith.
The Oral Communication Program (OCP): It offers classes once a week and gives emphasis on developing the oral communication skills of the participants. Because of the limited time, the students of this program do not have the same opportunity to develop and accelerate their Greek Language skills in all other aspects of the language as well as the SP students do. However, the educators do their best and parents and students are very happy with this program, which was introduced in 1997.
