Student Admissions into Elementary School 1st Grade



    Applications for participation in the 1st grade Admissions Lottery of the Hellenic-American Educational Foundation’s Elementary Schools (Athens College or Psychico College) are accepted from the date of birth of the candidate up until January 10th of the year in which the candidate is attending Kindergarten.

    Parents who applied for participation in the 1st grade Admissions Lottery before September of the year during which their child is in Kindergarten must visit the Admissions Office in order to renew their interest.  The renewed interest process takes place from September up until the last business day of October in the year that the candidate is attending Kindergarten.

    In order for the child to participate in the Admissions Lottery, parents pay 60 Euros to the College Accounting Office, in Psychico.

    The draw takes place sometime in January of the year that the candidate is in Kindergarten.


Children whose names are drawn for admission into the Hellenic-American Educational Foundation schools must successfully pass a school readiness assessment conducted by the Educational Psychology Department of the Foundation’s schools.

The distribution of students admitted into the Elementary Schools of the Hellenic-American Educational Foundation (Athens College or Psychico College) is carried out by the Administration.  Once admitted students with siblings are placed in the same school as their older brother/sister, the Administration distributes the remaining students in alphabetical order, depending on available places by gender in each of the two schools.

Students will complete their academic career (Elementary – Junior High - High School) in the same school in which they are placed in 1st grade.  A change in school can only take place if a student who has successfully completed Athens College High School grade 10 opts to join the International Baccalaureate (I.B.) Programme which is administered by Psychico College.

The draw for 1st grade student admissions for academic year 2020-2021 will take place in the Theater of Psychico College Elementary School (Latseio), in Kantza on:

Saturday, January 18, 2020

10:00 a.m. (general admissions) and

11:00 a.m. (alumni admissions)

Applications or renewals of  interest for participation in the 1st grade Admissions Lottery for academic year 2020-2021 will be accepted up through Friday, January 10, 2020 provided the fee of 60 Euros has been paid in advance at the Accounting Office in Psychico.
