Exploring College Life
The program Experiencing College Life is designed to provide mature ACS Athens sophomores and juniors the opportunity to experience U.S. college life first-hand. In the course of a week’s travel to the United States - usually in spring, participants will spend a day each on college/university campuses, that they and their counselors have identified as possible “Best Fits”.
Finding the "Best Fit" for a student's talents and inclinations, skills and personality is a process that starts at ACS Athens with the student and his/her counselors identifying candidate colleges and this program can further the selection.
