ACG: The perfect choice for degree-seeking students from North America!

We are excited that you are considering studying at The American College of Greece (ACG)! ACG offers a unique college experience in the country where learning began. Interested candidates from North America are welcome to apply as freshmen or transfer students.

Why is studying at ACG the right option for you?

Thinking outside the box

Athens represents the coming together of the ancient world and the modern society of today. Challenge and differentiate yourself by getting a bachelor’s degree abroad among a diverse student body, faculty, and staff. Emerge as a well-rounded and global-minded individual having lived and studied abroad.

Experience a new culture centered around food, beauty, history, art, and politics. Observe Greece’s incredible architecture, taste its traditional food, feel its warm sun, travel to its beautiful islands, and swim in its incredible seas. Explore the sites of ancient Athens and embrace the opportunity to study in a country with a rich history of educational development.

Going forward with success

ACG is regionally accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE). This means that after completing your studies in Greece your degree will be recognized when you return home! With a global education, graduates are prepared to enter the workforce or to pursue graduate studies.

Traveling the world

Athens is only the start. With Athens as your base, you can travel to the stunning Greek islands, explore ancient ruins and villages, and visit neighboring countries. Italy, Spain, and many other European countries, are just a few hours away by plane, train, or boat. Participate in college-organized excursions with friendly locals showing you the Greek way of life.

ACG presents you with the opportunity to live in the heart of Greece, while also being able to travel and explore all that Europe has to offer. Exploring the world as a student is an opportunity of a lifetime and it is right at your fingertips!

If you are still not convinced that Greece and ACG are the right place for you, think about it from Aristotle’s point of view:

You will never do anything in this world without courage.
It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.”

Be courageous! Take the first step: Apply now!
