Middletown, PA – This past Monday the Academy of Aristotle to St. George opened its doors to welcome students. The 2015-2016 academic year is the 24th year of operation of the Academy and provided excellent omens for another successful course in the Greek education. Last year over 140 students attended evening classes at the Academy classes from preschool up to 8th every Monday and Thursday, and there were separate sections for older children and for adults.
This year began with the traditional holy water Agiasmo, conducted by the priest of St. George, Father Anastasio Bourantas. The blessing was attended by students, teachers and many parents of the children of the Academy. This year sanctification coincided with the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross.
