What Makes Our School Different?

Faced with the great variety of educational institutions and approaches available today, conscientious parents are left asking a simple question: "Which school is best for our children?" The first question parents usually ask themselves is "Should we send our children to a public school?” Choosing between a public and a private school is not just about choosing which school provides the best academic instruction for your child. It’s important to know why many people believe the US public education system is failing. Here are some points that we would like to share with you:

1. The failure of the public schools:

 

2. Exposure to soul-damaging influences:

 

In response to these problems, the 3HA offers a traditional, time-honored, virtue-promoting, soul-profiting, comprehensive educational environment. Our program is grounded in the educational ideas and teaching of the Three Hierarchs and therefore aims at the formation of the whole child—soul, mind, and body.

 

What makes our school different:

 

Our school’s offerings include:

  • • a rigorous program in mathematics (abacus, mental arithmetic, comprehensive algebra, Euclidean geometry, and trigonometry);
  • • a unique opportunity for students to learn Byzantine chant and explore their artistic and musical talents;
  • a partial Greek immersion program (currently being developed) in which students become fluent in Modern Greek while acquiring a reading knowledge of ancient Greek;
  • • fine art lessons with Christian themes that inspire creativity and deepen a child’s faith;
  • • instruction in life skills such as cooking, sewing, gardening, and woodworking;
  • • a physical education program that develops athletic ability and builds teamwork.
