At each level of education, the Schools’ indisputable indices certify the quality of learning provided, determine priorities and guide the entire educational effort.



More...

The cultivation of values such as respect, trust, honesty, integrity, love, solidarity, and moral behavior as a prerequisite for success and happiness.

The primary duty and concern of the Schools from children’s early steps.

Knowledge as a product of play, creativity, collaboration and team spirit. Students, through an integrated teaching system, participate and learn by playing, creating, and having fun.

Expert educators help the youngsters to forge a balanced and well-rounded personality through the use of modern pedagogic methods, in a wonderful natural environment that is safe and full of joy, love, and creativity.

The adoption of goals and the path to their achievement. Students learn early on from elementary school to set goals, participate, cooperate, lead, and stand out.

First places in world Olympiads and international competitions manifest the philosophy of the Schools and validate their work. Students win first prizes and honorable distinctions in Science (Mathematics, Physics, Biology, Astronomy, Computer Science), Humanities (Modern Greek, Ancient Greek, Debate), arts, sports and international conferences.

The use of new technologies and the promotion of STREAM as necessary prerequisites for contemporary education.

Meaningful interaction of students with prominent figures from the world of culture is indispensable for quality education. Culture is a critical necessity in education and so are events that promote culture, cultivate aptitudes and skills, and bring students into contact with leading men and women in arts and letters.

Sports are an integral part of school life and character formation. They are supported by excellent infrastructure, including a 1000-seat indoor gym and several outdoor facilities.

Many and exceptional distinctions on the global and panhellenic levels demonstrate the leading role sports play in education.

The establishment of a safe, pleasant and creative school environment, a fruitful collaboration among students, teachers and parents, methodical work and organization, and proper orientation lead to the formation of moral characters and inculcate faith in high principles and values.

The students’ character is shaped the minute they enter the Schools. They are taught to have boundaries and respect for themselves and others. They learn the value of offer and love. Morality is a fundamental pursuit of the Schools and an essential prerequisite for the success and happiness of students.
