The Annunciation Greek Language and Culture School was founded in 1918 as a ministry of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral. It is an afternoon school program whose mission is to teach the Greek language, history, and culture to children and adults.
The children’s program consists of preschool, kindergarten and elementary school for grades first through sixth. The academic curriculum includes lessons in Greek language, mythology, and history. The cultural curriculum includes lessons in music and traditional dances. The children participate in many cultural celebrations and events throughout the year which are attended by the whole community.
The adults' program offers classes in modern Greek language for all levels: beginners, intermediate, and advanced. In addition, the school offers classes to teens and adults that prepares them for the Modern Greek Language Certification exams (Εξετάσεις Ελληνομάθειας). The Annunciation Greek School is an official examination center for the Certification exams.
Our talented and enthusiastic teachers hold advanced degrees and they use the most up to date materials and teachings methods.
The School Director is Mrs. Katerina Kontogeorgaki, M.Ed. Her vision for the school is to “bring to our students and our community the best education in the Greek language and culture. Our students are immersed in the Greek language and culture through mythology and history lessons, celebrations, workshops, games, and social events. The role of the Greek school goes beyond the teaching of the language, it brings together the generations of Greek Americans and strengthens their ties and their identity.”
