A Message from the Head of Schools

Welcome to the Hellenic American Academy, a unique place of education, inspiration, family values, and cultural enrichment. A place where young generations establish their identity by discovering their roots, cultivating their talents, and investing in their future.


A place where every child feels loved and appreciated and is given an opportunity to shine and excel while preserving and perpetuating the Christian Orthodox values and heritage.


The Hellenic American Academy offers a Greek American Day School from preschool and kindergarten through eighth grade, Greek Evening and Saturday Schools, and a wide variety of cultural and educational programs for children and adults. In all our programs, students are actively and enthusiastically engaged in their learning supported by highly trained and caring teachers who partner with dedicated parents to ensure the very best opportunities for every child.


I thank you for taking the time to explore our website and invite you to visit our beautiful campus in Deerfield, Illinois, to feel the safe and loving learning environment that makes our Academy the exceptional place it is for education and culture.


Best wishes,


Voula Sellountos,

Head of Schools
