You gave, We accomplished
Your generous contributions have brought to fruition many projects that advance the vision of ACS Athens providing students with opportunities, facilities and resources that will guide them to potentially “Transform the world as Architects of their own Learning”. Your donations allowed us to meet top priority needs as education changes, to upgrade and expand school areas and to provide opportunities both based on need and merit to students who are now able to share the ACS Athens educational experience. Deeply grateful to trustees, alumni, friends, corporations and foundations, we want you to know that your generosity has significantly impacted the educational experience for students.
