Educational Programs

The Greek School of Plato is proud to continue the Pre-Kindergarten classes for children ages 3-4. In addition, we are now offering Saturday Pre-Kindergarten classes.

​Kindergarten Class

The positive experience that our children receive as they begin their journey of learning the Greek language is a testament to the return of our children year after year to our Greek school program.

Parents have the option of choosing the weekday Kindergarten class offered twice a week for two hours per day or every Saturday for four hours.

Grades 1 through 9
As your child continues on their journey learning the Greek language, they will begin to learn the vast history of Greece, with every year of progression they will learn that much more of our wonderful history and our culture through practicing to read and write one of the most important languages in the world. A language that has fundamentally affected the western world, the European languages and culture.

These classes are offered on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, and on Saturdays.

Please contact us for further details.

Enrichment Programs

Ellinomatheia  (Greek Mastery) Enrichment
The “Comprehensive Examination in Modern Greek” is administered annually to the students of the Greek Schools in the New York Metropolitan Area. These examinations offer students the opportunity to receive recognition for mastery in the Modern Greek language as well as gain opportunity toward the accumulation of college credit (dependent of the level of testing achieved). In some instances, high level mastery certified under these examinations can equal eight to ten college credits at the Undergraduate level.

The Greek School of Plato offers preparatory sessions to its students and others seeking to take the Comprehensive Examination in Modern Greek. We have enjoyed a high success rate among those students who have been prepared through our programs.

Greek Regents Preparation
Although not a New York State exam, it is considered for Regents credits in foreign language studies for qualified students of public and nonpublic schools. It is widely accepted by the public schools in the State of New York.

The Greek School of Plato offers preparatory sessions to its students taking the Greek Regents for the recognition of high school credit and fluency in the Greek language.

Extracurricular Programs

Greek Dance
The Greek School of Plato is proud to provide the opportunity for our Greek school students to learn traditional Greek dances. Greek Dance is an important part of Hellenic culture therefore, an integral part of our school program. Our experienced Greek dance teachers offer our students the opportunity to learn traditional dances from many parts of Greece. Our teachers’ love and passion for teaching and performing Greek dance is behind the successful productions at the end of each school year for the last four decades. The classes are open not only to all students of our school, but to any student and community members who wish to learn Greek dance, a form of art that has its roots in Ancient Greece.

Marching Band
We are proud to say that our marching band is as strong as it has ever been. With over 60 band members, comprised of students and Alumni, we are proud to be Greek, and even prouder to be PLATONAKIA marching down 5th Avenue every year at the Annual Greek Independence Day Parade. We have had the honor of being chosen out of all of the Greek Schools in the tri-state area to escort the Evzones (Elite Greek National Guard) for the last five years at the Independence Day Parade. These are the memories we want our students to hold close to them for the rest of their lives.
