Welcome 2018/19 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 and Culture 15, 25, & 35 for students who want to advance their Greek and obtain credits for their high school matriculation.
