Greek School

Home   Greek School

Like most Greek Orthodox churches across America, St. Katherine offers classes in the modern Greek language for both children and adults, and across the proficiency spectrum.

St. Katherine’s Greek Studies program is unique in that we offer an integrated home-school program with onsite tutorial that is computer based and self-paced, making use of Living Languages, Mango Languages, and Rosetta Stone linguistic software and the latest teaching materials developed by the Papaloizos family, and books developed through a grant from the Archdiocese Faith Endowment.

Students gather at St. Katherine on Monday evenings from 4 to 5 pm for pre-kindergarden and elementary school children; and 4 to 6 pm for adults.

Classes are held on a weekly basis, where students (together with parents), are grouped and guided by attainment level, not by age or grade.  We offering 30 hrs of personal guided instruction for children, and 60 hours of instruction for adults over the 30 week program (3 x 10 Modules).  Progress and attendance reports are provided at the end of each Module.

After opening with the Trisagion (“Thrice Holy”) prayers to the Holy Trinity in Greek, the students attend assigned classes according to their age and linguistic abilities where they receive interactive tutorial in multiple aspects of the Greek language (e.g. reading, grammar, letters, music, writing, recitation), using the latest learning tools including laptops, iPad apps, video, flashcards and CD players.

For further information please call our Greek School Director, Vasiliki Lempesis, at (239) 204-1888, or by e-mail at vlempesis@yahoo.com , or our Parish Office.

Registration will take place on Sunday, Sep-6 (after Liturgy) and Monday Sep-21, 2015 (4 -6 pm)

Greek School begins September 28, 2015

For those adults who are unable to attend Greek School at our parish on Monday evenings, our Greek School Director will also be teaching the Greek language through Collier County Adult Community Education (ACE) program at Barron Collier High School during the 2nd Fall Semester.  Those interested may contact Vasiliki directly to inquire.
