Pierce – The American College of Greece
The mission of Pierce is to provide a holistic education to form intellectually independent, morally responsible, socially engaged global citizens. “Non ministrari sed ministrare” (“Not to be served but to serve”) defines our institutional character and our aspiration for our students.
Offering high quality, personalized secondary (Gymnasium – Lyceum; International Baccalaureate Diploma Program) education, Pierce is one of three divisions of The American College of Greece (ACG), the oldest and largest American-based, comprehensive educational institution in Europe.
Mathisi Initiative’s is a non-profit organization founded in 2019 by a group of volunteers, and its mission is to facilitate access to educational programs of outstanding quality to all students in Greece, regardless of their economic or academic status. Among other projects, it has been working with BWSI to promote access to their program to Greek students.
Junior Achievement Greece is a non-profit organization which was founded in Greece in November 2005 by the initiative of the Greek Federation of Industries. Junior Achievement Greece conducts educational programs for all age-groups that aim to bridge the gap between education and the world of work. They are designed to inspire, encourage and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy, support them in creating their own jobs through innovative and experiential educational programs on entrepreneurship and financial literacy, as well as to engage them in activities that stimulate life-long learning, positive change, and ultimately help them reach their full potential.
