The Financial Office

The goal of the Financial Office is to service the financial needs of the constituents; students, parents, faculty and community at large, being responsible for all money related transactions of the school, e.g. budgeting, tuition billing and collection, school purchases, vendor payments, third party contracts, bank relations, accounting, cash flow, taxes, financial reporting, repairs and maintenance, new projects, etc.

Yearly, the school's financial statements are audited by an independent auditing firm. The Financial Office operates based on the policies set by the school Board of Trustees and reports to the school President.

Payment Methods & Bank Information

The accepted methods of payment for tuition and fees are: INTERNET WEB BANKING PAYMENTS, DEPOSITS, WIRE TRANSFERS, CHECKS and VISA/MASTER Card. According to Greek Law, starting January 2012, tuition can not be paid in cash at the Cashier's Office. However, after school activities can still be paid in cash at the Cashier's Office, if the amount is less than € 500.

A. Internet Web Banking Payments

ACS Athens is connected with the DIAS Inter-bank Electronic Payment system, which includes all Greek
Banks. ACS Athens is showing as a recognized Vendor, (category: Other Companies), at all Greek banks’
web banking sites, (similarly to utility, credit card, telephone, etc. companies).
Parents would be able to make payments to the school in two ways: either from the convenience of their
home using their own bank’s web banking site, or visiting their own bank and make the payment at the
teller’s desk.

The process is as follows:

  1. The parent is required to obtain from the school cashier Mr. Ioannis Exarchou,
    (email: exarchoui@acs.gr , or call 210 6070 208) a payment transaction code which identifies the student/family. This is a permanent payment code, there is no need to ask for a new one every time you make a payment. This code is similar to the transaction payment codes that many utility and telephone companies show on their billings.
    2. The parent could either make an electronic payment through his/hers bank web banking site, following their bank’s payment instructions, or physically visit his/hers bank and make the
    payment at the teller’s desk. In both cases the school provided payment transaction code must be used as the payment description.
