Updates regarding coronavirus COVID-19

In Fall 2020, ACT is planning to deliver its normal academic offerings with very little deviation. We are preparing for an on-campus delivery, but at the same time, since the virus crisis is not over, we are also developing all the necessary protocols and mechanisms that will ensure that campus presence is safe. Recognizing that some students may not be able to physically come to campus, we are also developing the necessary infrastructure that can accommodate them with real-time electronically mediated instruction.

For the latest guidance for students, faculty and staff, please follow the link below.

Provost's Message

stamoskaramouzis Welcome to ACT!

The American College of Thessaloniki (ACT) is the tertiary division of Anatolia, a private, not-for-profit educational institution founded in 1886. ACT is an independent American institution chartered in the State of Massachusetts and accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE). ACT also holds EU program validation and has been granted a license by the Greek government to operate as a private post-secondary College.

ACT is a vibrant learning community, where students of 20 different nationalities meet a highly diverse faculty body to engage in discourse characterized by sharing and mutual respect. In addition to knowledge acquisition, the hallmarks of the ACT experience are critical inquiry and service to others.  The ACT curriculum promotes open inquiry in a conscious and systematic way, in order to broaden students’ horizons, cultivate their talents, enhance their understanding of the world, and prepare them for a life of empathy.

At ACT, we strongly believe in the role that the environment and in particular Gaia plays in fostering intellectual growth; that is why we have built a beautiful campus on a hill, overlooking the Aegean Sea. Under the Grecian blue sky and amid a plethora of ancient trees and shrubs (cypress, olive, plums, pomegranate, etc.), our students have the opportunity to use our state-of-the-art educational facilities in pursuing their educational goals. This is the same environment that, a few miles to the East became the birthplace of Aristotle, while a few miles to the West, the birthplace of Alexander the Great.

If you are currently an ACT student, I would like to congratulate you for your choice and ask you to be proud of your studies and your institution. If you are contemplating becoming an ACT student, I urge you to explore the ACT programs of study and I encourage you to visit or contact us, in order to facilitate your joining of our community. We will be delighted to address all of your queries, and discuss your future.
