The NYC GREEK ORTHODOX PAROCHIAL DAY SCHOOLS and the afternoon/Saturday Greek language schools
During the 2012-2013 school year, there were 53 schools operating within the District – nine day schools and 44 afternoon/Saturday Greek schools. These schools employ 223 Greek teachers and have an enrollment of 5,395 students.
In addition, five of the parochial day schools maintain Universal Pre-K programs with an enrollment of 270 students. These schools are: A. Fantis and DGK, Brooklyn; Jamaica Day School; 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 five pre-school centers with 186 students in attendance. Pre-school centers are maintained by the following parishes: St. Nicholas, Flushing; Holy Cross, Whitestone; Koimisis, Brooklyn; Archangel Michael, Port Washington, and Our Saviour Church, Rye.
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.
