Learning Support Programme
The American Community Schools of Athens is a private, non-profit, pre-K-12 institution, governed by a 15-member Board of Trustees (12 that are appointed and three that are elected by the parents) which has served the children of the American, international and local communities in the Athens area for over 60 years. Guided by a strong vision of high expectations rooted in solid values, the school's policies and practices governing curriculum design, teaching practices, operating procedures and human interactions are shaped by the values implicit in its mission statement: ACS Athens is a student-centered international school, embracing American educational philosophy, principles and values. Through excellence in teaching and diverse educational experiences, ACS Athens challenges all students to realize their unique potential: academically, intellectually, socially and ethically -- to thrive as responsible global citizens.

From junior kindergarten through grade 12, the learning experience at ACS-Athens has been designed to develop each student's creative and critical thinking skills; life-long learning habits; sound scientific and mathematical aptitudes; ability to express him/herself clearly orally, in writing and through the arts; knowledge of the other cultures; appreciation for the value of the study of the past; mastery of the tools of technology; physical well-being; sense of responsibility; and citizenship and leadership skills.
