Application for Admission
Student’s Personal Statement
To students applying for Grades 6-12:
Please attach your personal statement in English with this application. Your essay should be hand-written and consist of a short autobiography and a statement of your hopes and plans for the future, especially what you expect to gain from an American school experience in general, and from ACS Athens in particular. This is a good way of introducing yourself to the school, so please express yourself clearly and meaningfully.
Along with this application, parents must attach a signed statement in English or Greek, describing
the particular circumstances that prompted you to choose ACS Athens. What are the specific factors of your decision? What are your expectations from the school? Please explain any frequent change of schools, abnormal grade fluctuations or family environment issues that may affect the student’s performance. Is there any information that the Admissions Committee must take into consideration while deciding on admission of your child? Please note that all disclosed information will be kept strictly confidential.
It is highly recommended that all application material be submitted promptly as students are accepted on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please note that ACS Athens gives registration priority to its existing students, returning students and the children of our alumni.
For an application to be submitted successfully, you will see a submission confirmation notice when you hit the SUBMIT button. If the application form returns on the screen, please check that all fields with an asterisk (*) are completed and re-SUBMIT.
