Greek School

The philosophy of the St. Nicholas Greek School is to offer a program to students from Pre-K to Level 7 that includes the teaching of the Greek language, Hellenic culture, history, and our Greek Orthodox faith by providing a learning environment that is supportive and structured to provide the best opportunities for each student to develop his/hers individual potential to the fullest.

 
Co-Directors: Lela Digenis and Gloria Dukakis

The directors and teachers of our school are dedicated fellow parishioners who have an extensive knowledge of the Greek language and Hellenic culture, and are inspired to instill this knowledge to our students in a loving and enthusiastic manner.  
They are trained educators who love children and have a desire to serve our community.
