Ukrainian Language Programs
T. Shevchenko School of Ukrainian Studies is a Saturday program that stresses language, geography, history and culture. The school is located in Parma, Ohio, and is sponsored by St. Vladimirs Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral. It is a member since 1999 of the Ukrainian Congress committee of America (UCCA), Educational Council in New York City, and United Ukrainian Organizations (UZO) of Greater Cleveland. About 70 students and 22 teachers participate in the program's language immersion education. Classes meet for 3.5 hours per week and cover the four basic skills of comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing.
Ukrainian Heritage School
The main objective of the Ukrainian Heritage School is the education of its students in Ukrainian language and culture in order that they may retain their Ukrainian heritage. The school has been able to instill in these students a strong sense of their identity as Americans of Ukrainian descent and an understanding of their responsibility to carry forward the Ukrainian tradition.
