Dormition Church Greek School
About our program
The Dormition of the Virgin Mary Church Greek School was established in Somerville in the early 20th century when the Church first opened its doors in 1916. Through the years it has provided an academic Greek education to thousands of students from Kindergarten through 6th grade. From the first Greek School teacher and parish priest – the +Rev. Fr. Konstantinos Kacoyanis in 1916 – through to the present-day teachers, they have all brought their combined love of Greek language and youth to fruition with the sharing of their knowledge. The strong programs of the past decades that educated so many students have now been enhanced to bring the current curriculum into the new digital informational age.
The Dormition Church Greek School Program is strong and multi-faceted and in addition to the Greek language, it includes the comprehensive teaching of Orthodox faith, Hellenic culture, traditional dances, songs, games, music and theatre through the extensive use of audiovisual materials.
