The roots of Zoodohos Peghe Church, located in The Bronx and Manhattan, can be traced back to the early 1900s when Greek immigrants settled in these areas. To ensure a strong connection to their cultural heritage and provide a proper upbringing for their children, the Greek-American Institute was established in 1912. Serving as the first Greek-American day school in New York, it aimed to create a community where Greek children could thrive alongside their peers.
