Open House

Socrates Hellenic American Academy Day School - Open House - Feb 15th, 2012 - Deerfield IL
Dear Preschool and Kindergarten Parents,

As Spring approaches, we know that many parents begin exploring options for their child’s elementary school for the following year. I am writing this letter to encourage you to consider the Hellenic American Academy’s Socrates Day School as one of your options. If you have not yet heard, we have taken our Day School to a new level of excellence and our academic programs (Preschool as well as K – 8) are flourishing.

Our Day School Open House is Wednesday, February 15th from 5:30 – 7:30 pm and will include free childcare (complete with crafts and fun activities) to keep your child busy so that you can more easily meet our Day School educators and parents to learn more about what makes our Day School so special.

Why Consider our Day School? Here are Just a Few Reasons:

• Academic Excellence, Dedicated Teachers and Small Class Sizes – Our curriculum is on par with schools in the North Shore but our class sizes are small and allow more individualized attention. Additionally, our wonderful teachers (most of whom hold a Master’s degree and have at least 10 years of experience) are absolutely committed to seeing each of our children achieve their personal best. The results? Last year, on average, our students scored in the 93 percentile in national standardized tests in reading and math.

• Nurturing Environment with Emphasis on Family and Greek Orthodox Values- Our school community is close-knit and we care about each student. Our community emphasizes not only academic excellence but, equally, character development to help prepare our children to make good decisions in a modern world. Our environment focuses on core values such as honesty, compassion, integrity and personal responsibility.

• Multi-Level Greek Language Programs Plus Classical Studies – Research clearly indicates that students who study a second language perform better across subject areas. Our leveled Greek language curriculum is tailored to suit children who already have a foundation in Greek as well as those who are new to the language. Additionally, our language program includes classical studies.

• Financial Incentives and Scholarships – Our school offers a number of financial incentives as well as scholarships.

We invite you to take a few hours out of your busy schedule and visit our Day School Open House. Come see first hand what sets our school apart. Alternatively, to schedule a private tour or request additional informational, please call 847-317-1063.

Many thanks,
