OCS aims to promote the Greek language and culture in the US, not only through formal but also through non-formal education. To this aim, the school is collaborating with universities in Greece, such as the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and it has signed Memorandum of Understanding with the University of Patras but also with Harvard University and the University of Delaware. The school has also signed MoU with a state school (K-12) in Ancient Olympia, Greece and with Pierce College, the American College of Greece in Athens.

The school aspires to reinforce the links between Greece and the U.S. by encouraging and enabling members of its staff and students to participate in summer programs and courses, such as the one organized by the Centre for Hellenic Studies (Harvard University) in Nafplio, or the summer program of the School of Modern Greek, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the International Summer School on Ancient Drama (Epidaurus Lyceum, Peloponnisos). Such programs of non-formal education will allow teachers and students to broaden their horizons, improve their language, communication and collaboration skills and cultivate their knowledge about the Greek history, culture and civilization.

As a result of these collaborations, for the first time last year, one of our High School students gained a scholarship to participate in the High School Summer Program organized by the Center for Hellenic Studies, Harvard University, Nafplio, Greece.

The ultimate aim and vision of the school is to build bridges of intercultural and bilingual communication and to forge links of meaningful collaboration and friendship between educational stakeholders in the US and in Greece.
