St. Athanasius Academy of Orthodox Theology
is an academic community of the
 Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America 
serving through Research, Writing, and Education

Who We Are & What We Do
St. Athanasius Academy of Orthodox Theology was founded in 1976 as an arm of the Evangelical Orthodox Church and entered canonical Orthodoxy when that body was brought into the Antiochian Archdiocese. We offer a Correspondence Study Program, operate a Prisoner Education Program, and carry out various programs of research and study to prepare materials presenting the Orthodox Christian faith to Americans. The Orthodox Study Bible: New Testament and Psalms is an outstanding example of the fruit of our literature programs. Currently we publish booklets in the Timely Topics series and the Booklets for Children series. Also, whenever appropriate, we publish audio and video tapes on various topics.

Mission Statement
The mission of St. Athanasius Academy (founded 1976) is to prepare and communicate materials on the Orthodox Christian faith in English for both Orthodox and non-Orthodox people — particularly the laity. Thus, our goals are three-fold:
  1. to be a valuable and helpful teaching ministry of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North American and a service to all,
  2. to help all Christians learn more about the history, teachings and practice of the Church, and
  3. to help spread the Spirit of Orthodox Christianity to all Americans.

A New Development
St. Athanasius Academy has joined with the Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry, Conciliar Press, and the Department of Missions and Evangelism to form the new Council on Missions and Evangelism to jointly bring the Orthodox faith to Americans.
