ACS Athens Welcomes You!

Dr Stefanos Gialamas Dear Visitors and Friends of ACS Athens:

I would like to welcome all of you to an exciting academic year, full of innovative approaches in Teaching and Learning.

We, individually and collectively, are continuously reflecting on our educational paradigm, in order to identify new paths, new strategies and new approaches towards our vision of serving students and humanity.

ACS Athens is always looking ahead by providing innovative and holistic educational experiences to all of its students. The following are some tangible evidences of our success in providing an educational experience for our students so they may become architects of their own learning in order to transform the world:

  • We continue growth of enrollment, which has reached a new high. This indicates that ACS Athens is enjoying a great reputation as an institution with not only high academic standards, but also as an institution living with its commitment in serving humanity.
  • For a third year, ACS Athens IB Diploma students achieved exceptionally high IB Diploma scores. Two students received the perfect score (45/45) and ranked at the very top of the scale; 95% of subject averages of ACS Athens students were above the world average.
  • Our college/university placement has been outstanding, with our graduates continuing their education in their “best fit” schools around the world.

I am very proud to work and serve such a community of faculty, staff, administrators, parents and Board of Trustees who make an invaluable impact on the lives of so many students. The growth of our community, with quality and integrity, would have been unimaginable a decade ago.

I would like to close with the following quote:

"If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough." ( Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Africa's First Woman President (Liberia) )
