At Athens College, we accept parental online applications for their child’s admission into “John M. Carras” Kindergarten for academic year 2022-2023 from the date of birth of the candidate up until the January 30 2022. To initiate the admissions process, parents must pay the amount of 60 euros to the Accounting Office of the College, in Psychico, as soon as they receive notice.
The draw (lottery) for Kindergarten admissions for academic year 2022-2023 will take place on Wednesday, February 9 2022 in two separate sessions:
- 16.00 Lottery for Alumni
- 17.00 General Category
Candidates who will successfully gain admission will be evaluated by HAEF psychologists (as stated below). Due to special circumstances, the lottery will be held at “John M. Carras” Kindergarten by the lottery committee without the presence of parents. The procedure will be broadcast live. Names of both parents and candidate students will not be shown online.
Parents of children whose names are drawn are required to pay a lump sum of 350 euros, which is not offset by tuition fees and is non-refundable. Parents must submit their child’s necessary medical documents and developmental history and candidates must successfully pass the Pre-Kindergarten readiness test administered by a HAEF psychologist. Last, the daycare center or preschool that the candidate attends must also complete and submit the relevant form.
A pre-requisite for registration is the successful completion of the admissions process outlined above, submission of the child’s immunization record and verification that the child is toilet (potty) trained.
Candidates who have siblings attending the College or are children of 4th generation College alumni do not participate in the lottery process: however, they must submit the application form on a timely basis and successfully complete the admissions process.
Group tours and info sessions about the Kindergarten program are held on specific days and times during the course of the school year.
In academic year 2021-2022, virtual tours will be held on Tuesday, November 2, 2021, Friday, December 17, 2021 and Tuesday, January 18, 2022.
You can register for one of the tours by contacting the Head of Kindergarten Admissions and Parent Communication Ms. Mata Bardi. (T: 210 6798214, 210 6798297, email: [email protected])
