“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.”
St. Luke’s Greek School operates every Tuesday from 5:00-7:00 pm. We offer 10 levels (Pre-K thru 8th Grade) in addition to an adult class which began within the last few years. Specialized courses are also provided for the Greek Proficiency Certification Exams (Ellinomatheia) by the Greek Language Center in Thessaloniki.
Our educational program focuses on Communicative and Task-Based Language Teaching. This kind of approach is based on students’ needs and interests. It also reflects real-life situations, making the lessons relevant to the students' personal lives.
In addition to our educational materials, our school makes a special reference to the Greek Orthodox Church, Greek History and Geography, and Greek Culture.
Pre-K to 5th Grade
At the lower levels, emphasis is given to teaching the Greek Alphabet, the syllables, simple words and vocabulary that is used in everyday life.
At the Pre-K level, the books "Τα Ελληνικά μου", provided by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, are used as the main source material in a PDF format.
Levels K-5 use the digital platform and the books "Γεια Χαρά" by Papaloizos’ editions.

At the higher levels, emphasis is given to teaching the four skills – Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking.
