Office of The Principal
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Pierce – The American College of Greece. I invite you to learn about our traditions and history, our commitment to developing intellectual and personal character, and the wonderful resources and opportunities our school offers. The 2018-19 school year marks our 144th anniversary as an educational institution and there is much to celebrate:
- a history of outstanding student achievement and academic accomplishments;
- a vibrant student life full of exciting opportunities in Greece and throughout the world;
- an excellent university placement and graduation record – our graduates attend the top universities in Greece, Europe, the United States, and throughout the world.
“Non Ministrari sed Ministrare” (To serve, not to be served), the motto of our institution, has fortified our mission since our founding in 1875. It is this principle which continues to guide our students, faculty and staff, and we hope it is apparent as you learn more about our institution.
A culture of leadership and service has served as the cornerstone of our College over our history. We continue to meet the challenges we face today, evolving into a stronger and healthier institution, delivering an exemplary model of education in Greece.
The Pierce culture reflects the best that traditions have to offer along with a commitment to embracing an ever-changing world. Welcome to Pierce and I believe you will come to understand and appreciate why our community is considered home and family to so many.
