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) of Athens College and Psychico College. Upon availability, it is announced whether admissions exams will also be held for new students entering the 2nd and/or 3rd year of Junior High School.
The Student Admissions Office accepts online applications.
Following the online application and in order to complete the registration process parents should:
- Complete the online form with the terms and conditions of the examinations they will receive through e-mail by the Student Admissions Office.
- Send a recent photograph of the candidate in jpeg format for the “PARTICIPATION FORM”, that candidates must have with them on the day of the examination.
- Deposit €120 to an Athens College bank account.
Terms of the examination
Subjects tested are:
- Greek Language
- English Language
The exam syllabus for the three subjects is available in the Related Files (Junior High/High School).
Each of the three 75-minute tests (Greek, English, Mathematics) will be scored on a scale of 100 points, with 50 points considered the lowest passing grade.
Parents of candidates who have learning disabilities – certified by a public organization- must submit all relevant documents.
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 ranking and the cumulative score achieved in the Greek Language, English Language and Mathematics tests and based upon availability.
Final scores will be announced to parents in writing through e-mail 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 schooling 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.
