On May 6, 2019, the NYSED Board of Regents approved the full term renewal of the Hellenic Classical Charter School-Park Slope in NYC Community School District (CSD) 15.

HCCS-PS is a highly successful charter school located in NYC CSD 15 that has a long and consistent history of success, and has been designated a High Performing Reward School by the NYS Education Department for four consecutive years. In addition, HCCS-PS ranks among the top charter schools in New York.  According to Politico and The NYC Affairs HCCS is a “model of integration.”  HCCS-PS is profiled in New York City’s Best Public Pre-K & Elementary Schools Parent Guide by Hemphill & Raschka.

HCCS-PS will provide a diverse student body with a rigorous education in a dynamic environment. Using a standards-based curriculum, enriched with the Greek and Latin languages, and the classics woven throughout, students will engage in dialogue using the Socratic method to become critical thinkers. Students will become college and career ready and well-prepared to succeed and contribute to the global community as responsible citizens.

School Board Chairperson Charles Capetanakis, Esq., stated “This is great news.  HCCS will continue to strive for academic excellence and spread Hellenism”.

HCCS-PS opened its doors on September 6, 2005 and was established to provide a classics based education in the study of humanities and literature for students in Kindergarten through 8th grades.  HCCS-PS has proudly received three full charter renewals and continues to exceed the district, city and state averages on the New York State Examinations.
