Saint Basil Academy is the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese home for children in need. It was established in 1944 to house orphaned children and later became a school to educate young Greek women to teach the Greek language in our parish communities. Today it is a safe haven for children within a nurturing and spiritual environment.
