Saint Athanasios Greek School’s mission is to teach the Greek language so that the students can fluently converse and function in a Greek speaking environment.  Our curriculum and instruction will also be consistent with the Greek culture, history and heritage, all of which reinforce Orthodox Christian values and will prepare our students, the next generation, to be active members of our church family.

Our program is divided into 3 levels for all ages.
Level 1 – Beginner
