About

A Gap Year is a period when students, who have recently graduated from High School, take some time away from their routine to explore themselves and a new part of the world while earning college credit, meeting new people, gaining life experience and diversifying yourself from the crowd! It could be one summer, one semester or one year. It is a time when students open their minds to new experiences in Thessaloniki which facilitates exploration and cultural engagement and offers the opportunity to become actively involved in the community.

Studying at ACT allows you to be in touch with the ancient roots of
democracy, see the influence of modern day civilization, walk in the places
where Alexander the Great, Aristotle and Paul once stood, live in the
cross-roads of three continents, engage with classmates from around the world,
challenge yourself by visiting places you have only before read about in
classes. The international student body will open your world as you learn more about life in Greece and other countries while participating in international conversation each day in the classroom and creating relationships around the world which will last a lifetime.

Courses are offered in Business, Humanities, Technology and even Sea Sailing- there is something for everyone at ACT!
