Furthermore, as we said before, the Community heavily subsidizes the Greek School, thus, we expect that you will also pay the tuition in full upon registration. If applicable, please Click here to fulfill your Stewardship obligation

             During the registration process, please provide us with the following information so that we can reach you when necessary.

1) your current address

Books

            The books to be used this year have arrived at the Church office and you must pick them up upon registration.

 Pamphlet 

            The Greek School Committee has prepared a pamphlet (click here) to provide you with additional information related to the coming school year (this and next semester, assuming we can resume classes at the Church).

 Teaching

            As stated before, instruction will be “virtual” (non-physical presence; remote teaching) for the first semester. To that end, the teachers have received instruction on how to effectively teach/distribute the material remotely, via the Internet. We intend that all the teachers follow a commonly adopted approach for the dissemination of the materials and for related interactions, so that all students have the same learning experience.

            We understand that this process puts an extra burden on you all. However, under the current circumstances, we have no option but to take this “wait and see” approach.  We count on your patience and perseverance to teach our children the Greek Language while going through this difficult time. We thank you in advance for your time and dedication to this difficult task.

Sincerely,

Dr. Vassilis Keramidas
Greek School Committee Chairman


Additional Registration Information:

For a family to register their child(ren) to attend any class, beginning with the pre-kindergarten class up to the 7th Grade (Regents) class, the minimum stewardship must be paid. The minimum amount required will be $400 for the St. George Community per family. For cases of financial difficulty, the family must contact the President or the Priest of the St. George Community to make alternate arrangements.

For the pre-kindergarten class, the child must be must be four (4) years old by 1 November for the school year beginning that September and also must be under six (6) years old. The child must be toilet-trained. A copy of the child's birth certificate must be shown prior to registration. Thus, the child must have been born by 1 November four years before the September of that school year so that they may register, otherwise they cannot register for the class that year but may do so next year that they meet the age requirements.

The annual tuition for each student of the Greek School will be as follows, per family: $350 for the first child, $300 for the second child, $250 for the third, and free for the fourth. This tuition is required for each student enrolling in any grade from the pre-Kindergarten Class to the 7th Grade Class (Regents).

Registration for the Greek School and all its classes, and any information requests will be provided by the St. George Community Office. The family may telephone for any such information.
