The mission of the Saint John of Damascus Orthodox Educational Initiative is to provide educational opportunities grounded in an Orthodox Christian worldview, to educate the faithful about the dangers of secularized educational institutions, and to produce a full Orthodox curriculum for grades K-12.
The state of secular education, whether public or private, has declined to such an extent that we Orthodox cannot stand by and watch our children be indoctrinated by atheistic and immoral teaching. Our faithful deserve to be informed of the threat and provided with an Orthodox alternative.
The Initiative currently offers online classes for children of all ages in history, literature, apologetics, composition, catechism, logic, rhetoric, Modern Greek, science, and Byzantine chant. The classes are taught by Orthodox teachers with degrees in their fields.
We also offer Orthodox content geared toward adults in the form of a discussion group, a podcast, and a YouTube channel.
