COVID-19 : Keeping Athens College Safe

Athens College at a glance

Athens College was founded in 1925 by enlightened Greeks, led by Emmanuel Benakis and Stephanos Delta, with the support of American philhellenes. It belongs to the Hellenic-American Educational Foundation (HAEF), a not-for-profit organization. For almost a century, it stands as a beacon of  primary and secondary educational excellence, incorporating best global educational practices of Greece and beyond. The premier education provided is enriched with a program of diverse extracurricular and social outreach activities.

We promote excellence and encourage our students to take advantage of the opportunities being offered to them, as well as to reach their highest potential. We shape responsible global citizens and future leaders, nurtured by the values of the intellectual heritage of Greece and the liberal values of the United States and Europe.
