ΓΡΚ is an international Greek Honor Society that recognizes outstanding attainments in the study of Ancient Greek language, literature, and culture.
ΓΡΚ consists of two tracks for membership: Kappa and Gamma. The purpose of the Kappa track is to recognize outstanding attainments in the study of the Ancient Greek language and literature, to stimulate study and research in this field, to promote an understanding and appreciation of the Ancient Greek cultures, and to advocate the reading of Ancient Greek writings, including the Greek New Testament, other early Christian literature. The Kappa membership track is based upon scholarship, can only be pursued through a ΓΡΚ chapter organized at an educational institution, and must follow the general and Kappa specific bylaws. The purpose of the Gamma track is to encourage the active use of Ancient Greek, to promote cognitive teaching/learning styles, to actively engage the Greek New Testament, and to advocate Ancient Greek studies outside academia. The Gamma membership track is based upon continuing interest in Ancient Greek language and cultures, can be pursued through a ΓΡΚ chapter organized at an educational institution or a local community, and must follow the general and Gamma specific bylaws.
