Our Mission...

Dear Friends,

My wife and I enrolled our children in St. John Greek Orthodox Day School three years ago and we have never looked back. Each day we continue to be impressed with the strong curriculum, the outstanding faculty, and especially the family environment, which makes our children look forward to going to school.

Realistically however, we are at a pivotal moment at St. John Greek. The existing classrooms are much too small for today's broad curriculum. And like all the other private schools in Tampa, the time for renewal is here.

We are embarking on the challenge of constructing a new two-story classroom building, which will provide spacious, high-tech classrooms, and a library/media center for which we can all be proud. But that is only half the story. The other half is about how our students, through our new facility, will be able to soar to even greater heights.

It is important that all of us join together to make this campaign a success. Please consider a generous contribution to the future of our school.

John Simon
Campaign Chairperson

From 1967 to today, St. John Greek Orthodox Day School has provided an excellent academic program in a nurturing, Christian-based environment for grades K3-8.But ask yourself: Does our classroom building say, "Come on in and see the great things that are happening here on a daily basis"? Perhaps not.

Visitors often tell us that the facility seems too small in comparison with other private schools in Tampa or we hear our parents telling prospective families to "look beyond the facility." This cannot continue if the school is to prosper.

Despite all the wonderful aspects of the St. John Greek program, our classroom building is no longer adequate. To attract and retain students in a market where most other schools have undergone significant building construction and renovations, we must move forward with the construction of a beautiful new, two-story building with 14 classrooms and a library/media center.
