Greek at Socrates Academy


Socrates Academy uses a partial dual language immersion model. Native speakers of English are taught in an environment where Greek Language, Culture and Math, are delivered in the Greek Language daily in addition to English. Our curriculum is driven by the North Carolina World Language Esstential Standards.


Other sources that guide our curriculum are the ACTFL (American Council of the Teaching of Foreign Language) proficiency guidelines and the Center for the Greek Language for Greek Proficiency certification


The intent of the World Language Essential Standards, along with the American Council for the Teaching of Foreign Language (ACTFL) is that a comprehensive set of language skills will be developed and used for effective communication. These skills are Communication, Culture, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities.


Socrates Academy has established a curriculum model that encompasses all of the above guidelines.
