A singular learning environment for our adolescents

Acknowledging the sensitive period of adolescence that Junior High School students go through, we encourage them to identify their strengths and weaknesses and to develop skills that will prepare them for high school, university and the rest of their lives. In our School’s singular environment in Psychico, we provide them with a broad range of subject areas and activities with which they learn and experiment, thus cultivating their talents and interests.

Our methodology

We comply with the Ministry of Education’s curriculum while applying the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme’s (MYP) concepts of holistic learning, intercultural understanding and skills development. The IB Organization (IBO) has authorized Athens College’s Junior High Schools as MYP World Schools.

We implement innovative programs, integrate technology into our teaching, and complement the Ministry’s textbooks with supplementary materials. We offer support tutorials that delve deeper into the subject content and fill gaps that students may encounter, as well as create and administer eQuizzes in all subjects. Lessons are held in the Library where students conduct research work. We enrich the program with clubs, activities, and events, such as presentations, competitions, and field trips.
