Ελληνικό Απογευματινό Σχολείο

Mission

The Annunciation Elkins Park Greek School was founded in 1901 as a youth ministry of the Philadelphia Evangelismos Greek Orthodox Community.  The program strives to implement the educational aims and goals of the Charter of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and the decisions of the Clergy-Laity Congresses. Our mission is to instruct children in the modern Greek language, instill a sense of pride and respect for Hellenic heritage and history, promote the values of our faith, and encourage fellowship among Greek Orthodox families and church communities.

Participation

Class levels are Pre-K - Level 6.  Students must be four years old by September 1 of the current year.  Please see our Greek School Handbook and Registration Form for further information. Courses are taught by teachers who are fluent in Greek. The program covers the study of the Greek language, history, culture, geography, and music, as well as the Greek Orthodox faith.
