The mission of Transfiguration Greek Language School is to teach the Greek language and culture, tradition, history, and geography of Greece, mythology, observe religious and Greek national holidays, and participation in various activities at Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church (TGOC).
Austin Greek School has established a carefully planned Greek language program that addresses the needs of all students – those who have a background in the Greek language and those who do not. For that reason, we provide a level-based program that allows students to be placed in classes with peers who have similar capabilities in the Greek language and grow within the language at their pace. The level classes give a child the opportunity to repeat a class or skip a class to be in the classroom that best meets their needs, not because it aligns with their grade level in traditional school. Classes are offered for elementary school-age children, including pre-school (4 – 5 years old), as well as teen and adult beginners, and intermediate and advanced beginners.
Classes are held at Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church every Tuesday or Friday, except for Thanksgiving week, Christmas/New Years holidays, Spring Break, and Holy Week. The School year starts in September and finishes in May the following year.
Children: 6:45 – 8:15 pm on Fridays (Starts on September 16, 2022 and ends on May 23, 2023)
Adults: 6:45 – 8:15 pm on Tuesdays (Starts on September 27, 2022 and ends on May 23, 2023)
Children – $400 (29 sessions)
Adults – $450 (30 sessions)
Additional family members that sign up would receive a 20% discount.
Refund Policy: If for any reason you decide to withdraw from the class, you must notify the Greek School within four weeks from the beginning of each session (by October 25, 2022 and January 31, 2023, respectively) to be issued a full refund.

Textbook – Adult Class
Please order the textbook as soon as possible, because it usually takes time to receive it. That way, we will not lose time starting. You do not need to order the exercise book that comes with it. The book we will be working on is:
“Communicate in Greek” ISBN # 978-960-8464-08-7
There are different publications with minor variations in the text – anyone will do (just do not get used ones, as the exercises are usually filled in). If two or three people from the same family attend, you need two or three books (or copies), respectively. This is the ISBN # of the book I have. Check at Amazon, Greeceinprint.com, etc. We will provide additional class materials.
