The Athenian Academy has a strong partnership with the Greek Embassy Department of Education. Our Greek teachers participate in a 3-5 year teacher exchange program and are all highly qualified, veteran, native speaking, educators from Greece.
The Athenian Academy employs State of Florida certified Spanish teachers. With multiple Spanish teachers on site, each brings the advantage of their home country dialect to the Spanish curriculum.
Athenian Academy is one of nine schools in Pinellas County School District to achieve FCAT gains in all grade levels during the 2009-2010 school year.

Message from Pinellas County Schools Superintendent
Congratulations to you and your staff for returning FCAT scores in reading and mathematics that are among the most improved in the district.
Your school is one of eight Pinellas elementary schools that achieved more than a 30-percentage point overall gain since last year.
Your commitment to improving student achievement is commendable and an example to all of us that it CAN be done.
Keep up the good work and know that I appreciate everything you are doing for Pinellas County students.

Dual Foreign Language Instruction Focus
Athenian Academy, established in the year 2000, was the first Greek immersion charter school in the United States. Today Athenian Academy’s curriculum has evolved into dual foreign languages including both Greek and Spanish. Athenian is the only school in Pinellas County that teaches two foreign languages daily to all K-8 students.
Traditional public schools offer foreign language classes, often popular options like Spanish and French.
But overall, children in the United States are behind their counterparts elsewhere in the world who
learn multiple languages while growing up. Students at Athenian along with core academics receive daily
instruction in English, Greek and Spanish giving them a tri-lingual, tri-cultural global advantage.
