At this time, the Greek American Institute would like to begin its in-house registration for the Greek American Institute UPK. As of September 2015, we will be offering a full day program as mandated by New York State.  As such, we have a limited thirty spots.

​If you have a child in the school and are interested in enrolling any younger siblings, born in 2011, please fill out the attached form and return to the office no later than February 5, 2015. Because of the demand of our program, it is imperative that you notify us in order for us to know you are requesting a seat for your child.  This, however, is not the registration form.  It is a preliminary survey.  You will be notified when registration packets are in, and must be completed at the designated time in order to insure your child’s seat.
