Welcome to the Archimedean Schools online application system. Please read this page in its entirety as it outlines everything you need to know to apply to our schools.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Archimedean Schools is to initiate the young mind to the art of thinking through the teaching of Mathematics, English and the Greek language.

Vision Statement

The founders of Archimedean Academy envisioned a Charter school (K-12) whose main goal is to provide its students an excellent education with emphasis in the teachings of the two main branches of the 3,000 year old Greek civilization: The Classical achievements in literature and the arts as they permeate our modern civilization and the art of mathematical thinking as the lifeline and the wind beneath modern science and technology. A conservatory is a public place of instruction, designed to preserve and perfect the knowledge of some branch of science or art. Children blossom inside a rainbow of heritages and dreams deeply rooted in the belief that an education of the highest quality will steer their lives for a better future in a better society. The conservatory provides the students with the highest quality education. Its strength emanates from the deep sense of responsibility in helping young minds to grow and the confidence in teaching the art of thinking through mathematics and literature. The Greek heritage belongs to humanity and not just to Greeks. It influenced our modern civilization from the architecture, to the literature and the fine arts. Mathematics form the foundation of modern scientific thought and practice. Therefore, their presence in the curriculum opens the children's horizons and provide them with a better understanding of our modern society.
