ACS Athens Publishes Its First Commemorative History Book! May 2017

"ACS Athens 1945 - 2017: Serving Humanity" is the latest publication of the American Community Schools of Athens, a Commemorative History book that chronicles the evolution of the American School in Athens, Greece, and its impact on the community and society.  With a nostalgic twist, seven decades come to life through over 500 vivid images and narrative, evoking memories and giving way to the promise of an exciting future.

This commemorative book offers insight on how, in its 70+ years journey, ACS Athens has evolved into a leading international academic institution.  Every story in the book is a narrative of milestones passed, every image a memory, all representing a piece of the mosaic which has ultimately formed the larger picture, year by year, superbly designed and illustrated by Leda Tsoukia.

"We stand on a platform at the present time, to see where we started, where we have journeyed, where we are today and where our aspirations as a leading international school will take us.” ACS Athens celebrates over 7 decades of educating the international youth, "with new goals, new dreams for our students' future," writes author, Amalia Melis.

"ACS Athens 1945 - 2017: Serving Humanity" honors all those who helped develop the current path the school has proudly embarked on including the past and current faculty and staff, administrators, Board of Trustees, Superintendents, and the current President of the school.

Throughout its history of civic engagement, academic curiosity, commitment, trust and community energy are just a few of the words that describe ACS Athens, where young minds are shaped and students emerge as well-rounded, educated, and ethical global citizens who will be productive members of any society they choose to live in.
