The aim of education in the Orthodox Church is “to nurture, instruct, and direct each member of the community of faith – the Church – in Christian living, or as Orthodox writers typically call it, the life in Christ, so that each person grows ‘in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ’ (2 Peter 3:18) and become ‘a partaker of the divine nature’ (2 Peter 1:4).
The Church School year begins on the first Sunday in September after Labor Day weekend. The last Sunday of Church School is the Sunday before Memorial Day weekend in May. However, all new students are welcome anytime. Class usually begins after the distribution of Holy Communion during the Divine Liturgy and continues until 11:45 am.
Our Church School offers classes for all ages of students, beginning with three year old children who are three years old by September 1 through twelfth grade students.
The classes are: Preschool - for 3 and 4 year olds; Kindergarten - 5 year olds; 1st Grade; 2nd Grade; 3rd/4th Grade; 5th/6th Grade; 7th/8th Grade; 9th Grade; and 10th - 12th Grade.
A music program for Preschool to 6th Grade is also offered.
