Due date for full payment is September 9th.
The full cost of the Greek School program is approximately $650/student. We are blessed to have the generous support of parishioners and outside organizations to subsidize a portion of the cost.
Our program is held on Fridays from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm for grades Pre-K and Kindergarten and 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm for grades 1st – 6th. For information about this year’s Greek School program, contact the church office at 219-769-2481.

Unpaid Stewardship and Tuition Balances – Due Immediately. Registration will not be accepted until unpaid balances are paid in full. Student(s) will not be allowed to participate in Greek School if stewardship and/or tuition are unpaid by the deadlines.

~ Early Registration Deadline is June 30.
~ A Late Registration Fee will be charged for all student registration forms and $100 student registration deposits not received in the Church Office by June 30. There will be no exceptions. Late registrations result in higher costs to purchase education materials and it does not allow us time to plan for the proper number of teaching staff.
