Our approach to learning and teaching is through child centered play and education. Our native speaking Greek teachers bring many years of experience and passion to teaching our Greek language and culture.
Tutoring and Mentoring
In 2015-6 School year the St. Athanasius Greek School is considering offering an extra tutor and mentoring session where kids can come to do homework and practice additional conversational Greek.
Our catechetical sunday school program offers a rich and faith based teaching program for children of all ages. We provide an enriching program for students and volunteers with many opportunities to experience our Greek Orthodox heritage.
Why Saint Athanasius Greek School Program
Our Greek school program is highly regarded in the area as one of the best classroom settings to teach our young children about the Greek language and culture.
It is centered around a social atmosphere allowing our kids to make life long friendships in a fun and caring environment and building true teacher/parent partnerships to engage the entire family with the learning process. Our teachers are experienced, caring, and passionate about teaching. They bring many years of experience and are all native Greek speakers.
Your child will have the opportunity to pursue a range of studies to begin and build upon their learning of Greek language and culture. Weekly classes concentrate on building language fluency with Greek reading, writing, and oral communication. Students engage in studies of Greek history, geography, and faith. We believe that extracurricular activities must complement the rigorous academic curriculum that we pursue. We have Greek dancing, drama, and public speaking as part of our programs, culminating in various public performances througout the year.
Saint Athanasius Greek Orthodox Church in Arlington provides our children with multi-purpose classrooms. We currently have over 6 different classrooms. Each classroom holds less than 20 students each and ensures a high teacher to student ratio in an intimate environment.
