American Community Schools in Athens announces new high-school scholarship
The American Community Schools (ACS) in Athens has announced a new three-year scholarship that will provide one student entering the 10th grade a chance to prepare for university at one of Greece’s best international schools.

Students who plan to apply must have a minimum GPA of 3.5 (out of 4) or 18 out of 20 in the Greek system, they must pass the ACS Athens admissions test in English and mathematics, and complete an essay reflecting on the responsibility of today’s citizens to serve humanity.
