Sunday School

Throughout the traditional school year, students from preschool through college are invited to join us after Holy Communion on Sundays for religious education. We aim to engage the students in a loving, welcoming and safe atmosphere, guiding them to understand and to love Christ and His Church.

Our goal is not only to provide education about the teachings and sacraments of the Holy Church, but to support families in raising their children in an Orthodox home, because we recognize that Orthodoxy is a lived faith and cannot be fully transmitted in a 45-minute class on Sundays.

To this end, Transfiguration’s Sunday School operates on a parish-wide curriculum. Every class, from preschool to college level, teaches on the same topic each week, in hopes that families will be able to come together after class, on the car ride home, and at the dinner table all week, to discuss the week’s lesson and how we can see it at work in our daily lives.

Because of the pandemic, our 2021-2022 year will look a little different from past years. We are offering three ways to learn:

  • Outdoor School — traditional classes offered outside, for preschool through college students, after Holy Communion on Sundays with good weather.
  • Online School — traditional, mixed-age Sunday school classes offered for elementary, middle and high school students on zoom, after Holy Communion on Sundays. (There are no online preschool or college classes at this time.)
  • Home School — should neither of these options work well (whether sometimes or all the time), families are encouraged to homeschool by following along with the same parish-wide curriculum, found for free at  This year we are doing the “Gospels” lessons, paced as you’ll see on the school calendar.
Students are welcome to move back and forth between these formats as needed. There is no need to notify us of which type of schooling you’ll use week-to-week. Please just utilize these offerings as best works for your family.
Registration never closes — you may register your student at any time during the year. There is no requirement to commit to parish membership (or even to Orthodoxy) before attending. We love to welcome new families, and hope to create as few roadblocks as possible. Come and see!
