Office of the President

President’s Welcome

Welcome to the website of The American College of Greece, the online home of Europe’s oldest and largest, comprehensive, US-accredited academic institution.

Founded in 1875 by Congregational women missionaries from Massachusetts, ACG has evolved into an independent, multi-faceted institution serving over 7,000 students from Greece and more than 70 other countries.

Here, you can learn about ACG’s three educational divisions: Deree– undergraduate programs in liberal arts and sciences, business, fine and performing arts as well as graduate programs in the arts and sciences; Alba Graduate Business School – MBA and MSc as well as extensive Executive Education programs; Pierce – a premier, co-educational, PK – 12 school offering a Greek-based national curriculum and an International Baccalaureate Diploma Program.

You can hear directly from our students and alumni, review the backgrounds and research interests of our faculty, and explore our three campuses – Aghia Paraskevi, Downtown Athens and Spata.

For our current students, the site is a portal to the technology resources of today’s collegiate experience. For our more than 62,000 alumni in Greece, the United States and around the world, the site offers a way to stay connected, be informed and take advantage of all that ACG has to offer even beyond graduation.

As you explore our site, you will discover what makes ACG a unique center of intellectual stewardship in one of the world’s most historic and cosmopolitan capitals – Athens, Greece.
