Greek Immersion

For centuries, the Greek language has been an essential part of western civilization, with its deep connection to literature and scientific and humanistic vernacular. The teaching of the Greek Language in a partial immersion setting will bring to our students the benefit of bilingual education to the brain.

Our Philosophy

The educational philosophy of the Archimedean Academy is unique. It integrates immersion in Greek as a second language with a comprehensive mathematics curriculum. The mathematics curriculum combines traditional American mathematics: with an emphasis on problem-solving and critical thinking with the Greek curriculum: with an emphasis on number sense, rigorous mental arithmetic with undertones of algebra, and geometry.

Teachers design learning opportunities in the areas of English, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Mathematics, and Greek Mathematics and Language. The school’s ultimate goal is to support all students to become productive contributors of the XXI Century by fostering in them the following skills:

Critical Thinking

Interpret/analyze data, reflect and find innovative solutions to opportunities and challenges;

Communication

Listens, speaks, presents, and writes with purpose and clarity in multiple languages;

Collaboration

Works well and contributes to the learning of others; values diverse perspectives;

Creativity

Thinks outside the box and promotes new ways of approaching opportunities and challenges;

Confidence

A life long learner that engages proactively and proactively with multiple audiences.
