Applying to 1st Grade of Elementary School
At Athens College, we accept applications for student enrollment in grade 1 of the Hellenic-American Educational Foundation’s Elementary Schools (Athens College or Psychico College) from the day of their birth up through the first ten days in January of the year the candidate is enrolled in Kindergarten.
We invite parents who submitted an application to renew their interest in having their child participate in the 1st Grade Lottery by visiting the Student Admissions Office any time in September and up through the last business day in November of the year the candidate is enrolled in Kindergarten.
The lottery drawing is held in January of the year during which the child attends Kindergarten. In order for the child to participate in the lottery process, parents must deposit 60 Euros to an Athens College bank account and must complete an application form for the admission process.
The distribution of students admitted into the Elementary Schools of the Hellenic-American Educational Foundation is carried about the Administration in alphabetical order of students, depending on available places by gender in each school. Priority is given to students who have siblings attending the College, so that they are placed in the same school.
Students will complete their studies in Elementary, Junior High and High School of the same school, in which they were originally placed in grade 1 and so long as they fulfill the requirements of the Internal Rules and Regulations of each individual school unit. A change in school may only occur in the grade 11 if a student opts to join the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP), which is run by Psychico College High School.
