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.

Here, you can learn about our undergraduate programs in business, the liberal arts and sciences and the fine and performing arts, as well our graduate programs in the arts and sciences and ALBA Graduate Business School. You can link to the dedicated website for Pierce – ACG’s secondary school (grades 7-12). You can hear directly from our students and alumni, review the backgrounds and research interests of our faculty, explore our remarkable campus, and discover the vital connections between The American College of Greece, Athens and Greece itself.

Built upon the foundation established in 1875 by visionary Congregational missionaries from Massachusetts, ACG has evolved into a vibrant, multi-faceted institution serving Greek and international students. From our campus in Athens, the College serves as a bridge of academic excellence, cultural continuity and friendship between Greece and the United States.

For our current students, the site is a portal to the technology resources of the modern collegiate experience. For our many 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, we hope you discover what makes The American College of Greece a unique center of intellectual stewardship in the heart of Athens, one of the most historic and cosmopolitan capitals of the world.
