ACS Athens Welcomes You!
I would like to invite you to ACS Athens, a world class International school leading innovation in Education. Not only am I proud to lead such an outstanding group of educators and professionals at ACS Athens but I am also proud for being the father of two ACS Athens graduates who benefited by the outstanding educational experience they enjoyed at ACS Athens.
We are committed to providing a Holistic, Meaningful and Harmonious educational experience to all our students.
Holistic refers to the understanding and successful combination of academic, emotional, physical, intellectual and ethical components to ensure a healthy, balanced individual; an individual who can successfully cope with the changes involved when entering higher education as well as the changes that life brings.
Meaningful is related to the degree of congruence at educational goals and outcomes with students’ dreams, strengths, talents, and desires. In addition, meaningfulness ensures congruence between one’s principles and values and one’s personal and professional life goals.
Harmonious is the designation given to the notion of synchrony and agreement among the various and often competitive dimensions of humanity. In other words, emotions, intelligence and intellect must be harmonically integrated with this integration being a critical characteristic of leadership competencies of listening, thinking, reflections, and decision making.
Today, more than ever, educational institutions must be judged not only by the academic results of its students, but also by how their students stand up for their adopted principles and values.
We are delighted that our students are receiving the foundation necessary to help them become tomorrow's leaders with ethos to make the world a better place to live in.
