Applying to Junior High & High School

The Hellenic-American Educational Foundation (HAEF) holds admissions exams for new students entering the 1st year of Junior High (Α΄ Gymnasium) and 1st year of High School (Α΄ Lykeion). 


Α. Entrance Exams - student admissions

Candidates will have to sit the exams that are held for admission into Athens College’s and Psychico College’s 1st year of Junior High and 1st year of High School. 
Subjects that are tested are:

  • Greek Language
  • English Language
  • Mathematics

The exam syllabus for the aforementioned subjects is uploaded in the Related Files.

Candidates who do not achieve a passing grade in any one of the three disciplines are excluded from admission.

Students will be admitted strictly based on rank, which is determined by the cumulative score achieved in the Greek, English, and Mathematics tests, and subject to the number of available spaces.

Final scores will be announced to parents in writing and no appeal for test retaking or review will be considered.

The Administration will place successful candidates into the two schools of the Hellenic-American Educational Foundation (Athens College or Psychico College) pursuant to availability of spaces in each of the schools.  In so doing, priority is given to siblings of students who currently attend Athens College or Psychico College.

Students will complete their academic career in the same school in which they were placed at the time of admission, provided that they meet the terms and conditions foreseen in the Internal Regulations of the respective school units. A change in school may only occur if a student who has successfully completed Athens College High School grade 10 opts to join the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP), which is run by Psychico College High School.

D. Financial Aid Program – Scholarship Program

It should be noted that it has been the College’s long-established policy to consider financial assistance requests from families facing serious economic hardship in order to help them meet tuition expenses through the General Scholarship Program.  Parents of students who pass the entrance exams but who are not granted a “Merit Scholarship” may apply, if they wish, for financial assistance within the framework of the General Scholarship Program.
