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 5,500 students from Greece and 70 other countries as well as a bridge of academic excellence, cultural continuity and, increasingly, economic development between Greece and the United States.

Here, you can learn about ACG’s three distinctive 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 degrees in specialized areas of business and management as well as an extensive Executive Education program; Pierce – a premier, co-educational secondary school (grades 7-12) offering both 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 remarkable 64-acre main campus on Mt. Hymettus, overlooking Athens.

For our current students, the site is a portal to the technology resources of the modern collegiate experience. For our 55,000 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.

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.
