Jun 6, 2003
New York, NY – The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese Department of Education has announced that this year's Comprehensive Examination in Modern Greek will be administered on Friday, June 20. The examination is offered for high school credit in the Modern Greek language.
The Archdiocesan Department of Education develops and administers the exam on an annual basis for Regents credit in accordance with the New York State Regents Guidelines for comprehensive examinations in modern foreign languages.
The effort to introduce the Greek language into the American public school system and to have an annual exam in Modern Greek began in the late 1960's, and in the thirty-year history of the Greek language exam, it is estimated that 19,000 students have received high school credits in a foreign language.
For this year's examination, the Archdiocese is pleased to announce a collaborative effort with the Hellenic American Union of Athens, Greece, a nonprofit cultural organization and testing facility for the administration of Greek and English language examinations. This year's exam was reviewed and validated by the Union, which helped to ensure its quality and overall reliability.
