Program Overview

Program Description:

The Gap Year at the American College of Thesaloniki is ideal for recent high school graduates who need a change of pace, a change of scenery, new motivations and horizons to reach into and explore.  This program is for someone who wants to break out of their routine and live abroad; to taste, touch, smell and live the experience. 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 living in a new culture, get involved by joining clubs and activities that capture your interest, and by visiting many famous locations that you have only before read about in classes or seen in the movies.  At ACT you also have the chance to volunteer through our Service Learning program and explore a career path to see if it is right for you.  Students who take advantage of this option leave ACT having a stronger sense of who they are and what they want to do in the future.
