The NYC GREEK ORTHODOX PAROCHIAL DAY SCHOOLS and the afternoon/Saturday Greek language schools

“A. Fantis” School of SS Constantine and Helen, Brooklyn

During the 2015-2016 school year, there are 49 schools operating within the Districteight day schools and 41 afternoon/Saturday Greek schools. These schools employ 249 Greek teachers and have an enrollment of 5,142 students.

In addition, five of the parochial day schools maintain Universal Pre-K programs with an enrollment of 253 students. These schools are as follows: St. Demetrios Day School, Astoria;   A. Fantis and DGK, Brooklyn; Greek-American Institute, Bronx and St. Spyridon School, Manhattan. (The UPK programs are funded by the New York State and operate as separate public school entities within our school establishments.)

The District is also the host of three pre-school centers with 133 students in attendance. Pre-school centers are maintained by the following parishes: St. Nicholas, Flushing; Koimisis, Brooklyn; and Archangel Michael, Port Washington.

The Greek Orthodox parochial day schools adhere to the NY State mandates regarding curricula and student assessment. They all maintain pre-school and kindergarten classes as well as elementary and junior high school grades. Only the St. Demetrios Cathedral in Astoria maintains a full high school.

Day and afternoon schools offer a Greek program of studies that incorporates the teaching of the Greek Orthodox faith, the Modern Greek language and history as well as the universal Hellenic ideals, customs, and traditions.
