Dear Parents of Admissions Exams 2020-2021 Candidates:

 

Please be advised Admissions Exams for 7th grade (1st year of Junior High) and 10th grade (1st year of High School) and IB1 will be held on Saturday, March 7, 2020, starting at 09:00 a.m. (arrival time 08:30 a.m.)

 

The testing center will be Bodossakeio School – Athens College Elementary School, in Kantza, Pallini – Attica (Postal Code 153 51), instead of Psychico campus, as originally scheduled.

 

The change in venue, as you may have been informed through the press or other media, is that further to consultation with relevant authorities and by Joint Ministerial Decision of the Ministries of Health and Education, HAEF school units operating on the Psychico campus (Athens College JHS-HS, Psychico College JHS-HS, “J.M. Carras” Kindergarten) will remain shut March 3 to 8, 2020 as a precautionary measure,

 

We assure you that to-date no cases of novel coronavirus have affected students or employees at our Schools. Furthermore, on March 1-2, 2020, our facilities were sanitized as a purely precautionary measure.

 

For your convenience, we would like to inform you of the following:

 

  1. Directions to Kantza, either by car or by suburban rail can be found below*(in English) or as an attachment (map & directions in Greek).
  2. The School is providing free mini-bus service from the Suburban Rail station to Bod sakeio School starting at 08:00 a.m.
  3. Once candidates arrive at Bodossakeio School, they will directed to the testing rooms.  Parents who wish to wait in Kantza for their child to finish will be escorted to Latseio School where there will be a reception area with coffee/soft drinks, as well as a canteen

 

Thank you for your understanding with regard to the change of venue for the 2020 Admissions Exams and for your confidence in Athens College.  The safety of our students and our staff, as well as that of prospective students and their families, is a top priority for us.
