A. Fantis School Soars to Academic Heights, Fueled by Core Values

A. Fantis School of the Historic Saints Constantine and Helen Cathedral of Brooklyn proudly announces its exceptional achievement in ranking #3 out of over 500 private schools in New York, according to recent data released by the New York State Education Department. Last fall, the data showed that A. Fantis placed #6 out of over 1,100 public and charter schools. Despite the unprecedented pandemic challenges, A. Fantis not only maintained its academic excellence but also experienced remarkable growth, propelling it to the upper echelons of New York's educational landscape.

Principal Theodore Tasoulas expressed profound pride in this achievement, stating, "This recognition is not just a testament to the dedication and passion of our students and faculty, but also the vision, commitment, and leadership of the School Board and Church Board of Trustees. It arrives at a perfect moment as we celebrate the 110/60 anniversary of our beloved church and school—a testament to the enduring spirit of excellence that has characterized A. Fantis throughout its rich history."

"Over the past decade, A. Fantis has grown from a small community school into one of the true jewels of education in Brooklyn. Whether it is in traditional academics, or our Hellenic language and culture programs, A. Fantis comes out on top time and time again. As both an administrator and parent, I am exceedingly proud of the education that our students recieve, as it prepares them to attend the best High Schools in New York, prepares them for a successful life ahead of our school, and prepares them to be lovers of both Orthodoxy and Hellenism" remarked Father Evagoras Constantinides, Dean of Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Brooklyn. 

The journey of A. Fantis School through the pandemic underscores its commitment to providing a world-class education deeply rooted in its core values. Philotimo, Pístis, and Parea guided the school's response to the crisis, ensuring continuity of learning and student engagement while upholding the well-being of its community. Through Paideia, students have not only excelled academically, but also holistically, developing compassion, integrity, and character. 

As A. Fantis School looks to the future, a commitment to service learning, project-based education, and the cultivation of critical thinking skills through the Socratic Method will prepare students not only for academic success, but also for a lifetime of purposeful leadership and service.
