Welcome 2019/20 Students!
The Hellenic Community School of Calgary was first established in 1963 to teach, preserve and promote the Greek language to children of Greek descent. Maintaining our language and culture is just as important to our community today as it was back then. Making sure our future generations know about the immense accomplishments and contributions that their ancestors made to the world at large is fundamental to creating pride in our Hellenic heritage. Building a connection to our language, our customs and our community is what makes our Hellenic community grow. A key component of helping to build that connection is our Greek Community School.
The school offers classes for children from Preschool to Level 6, and Greek Language & Culture 15, 25, & 35 for students who want to advance their Greek and obtain credits towards their Diploma.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Welcome to the community Greek School of Calgary!
Being part of the Hellenism in Diaspora, I find challenging fostering the Greek Heritage to youth. What does Heritage and Hellenism truly means? Why keeping the Greek language alive is of a great importance?
An attempt to see the meaning behind the words would be to define Hellenism as the admiration for and adoption of ancient Greek culture, ideas and civilization and the national character or culture of Greece. The only way to achieve it, is through educational institutions where you feel the connection with your Heritage.
It is often said that Greek is a language spoken by 10,000,000 people. This characteristic it what makes our language charming and contributes to its survival through the centuries.
We are so Honored and Grateful for working with all these devoted families for so many years and we trust that your support will be continuous.
