Orthodox Christian Network brings you news of events and people important to the life of the Orthodox Church around the world. OCN highlights media organizations that track these important stories.
There are 29 Greek Orthodox parochial day schools and more than 340 Greek afternoon and Saturday schools currently functioning in the United States with an enrollment of approximately 30,000 students. In addition, many parishes throughout the country offer evening Greek classes.
All Greek Orthodox parochial day schools adhere to local and state mandated curricula. They maintain nurseries, pre-school centers, kindergartens, and elementary and secondary grades.
Both the day and the afternoon Greek language schools offer a program of studies that includes the teaching of Modern Greek language, Greek history and culture as well as elements of Greek Orthodox faith and worship. The day and afternoon schools operate under the auspices of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and comprise the Archdiocesan School System.
As part of an on-going series on the Department of Greek Education, OCN is pleased to share news and excerpts from the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, Department of Greek Education. The Department of Greek Education is charged with the responsibility of assisting parishes in establishing and sustaining a Greek studies program that comprises the teaching of the Modern Greek language and the Greek history and culture, as well as the teaching of the Greek Orthodox faith and worship.
Funding for news from this department is provided through the support of OCN viewers and by Leadership 100.
