The Certificate of Attainment in Greek
The Certificate of Attainment in Greek was established in 1998. It is an official test that examines the second/foreign language learners in their various skills in Greek. People who obtain the Ellinomatheia Certification are recognized worldwide for their language qualifications, which can be used to study in universities in Greece and in Europe or for professional reasons. UNCC (University of North Carolina at Charlotte), among other universities in the USA, give 3 credits for Ellinomatheia Examination.

Certificates are issued for successful candidates at any of the following six levels of attainment in Greek: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2. The levels are linked to the corresponding levels of the Common European Framework (CEFR).

Certificate of Attainment in Greek for Professional Purposes
The Certificate of Attainment in Greek for Professional Purposes was established upon recommendation of the European Commission to the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs for reasons of compliance of the national legislation to European Union rules. It is intended for professionals who are European Union citizens and who wish to work in Greece and have to prove their proficiency in Greek. Candidates are tested at level A2 of the Common European Framework (CEFR).

Preparatory Course: Certificate of Attainment in Greek, Levels A1 and A2

For our OCS students (kindergarten to Grade 8), our curriculum allows them to obtain certification for levels A1, A2, B1, B2 after age 8.The OCS Curriculum is based on the precept of Greek being a second/foreign language and follows the FLES Curriculum, ACTFL’s standards and the levels and objectives which are tested for in the Ellinomatheia exams.

With the help of our educators, who are specially trained in the FLES Curriculum and in the levels of Ellinomatheia, our purpose is to encourage our students to take part in the exams, enabling themselves to assess what they are learning at OCS and to obtain an official certificate recognized worldwide.

In the future (in grades 8 and above) we are going to introduce our students to the Comprehensive Examination in Modern Greek that has been aligned to the Checkpoint B learning standards for LOTE ( Languages other than English). The certificate is taken under consideration for Regents credits in foreign language studies for qualified students of public and nonpublic schools. It is widely accepted by public school principals in the State of New York and elsewhere in the USA and has benefited thousands of students since 1973.
