Welcome to Anatolia, a welcoming, inclusive and vibrant international learning community!

Anatolia is a private nonprofit educational institution. It is in many respects a remarkable and unique institution with a history extending over 125 years. Its integrated educational community features:

  • An elementary school (K-6)
  • A Greek high school offering extensive instruction in English
  • An International Baccalaureate world school in which all instruction is conducted in English
  • A US- accredited and EU- validated college – called The American College of Thessaloniki (ACT) –  offering Bachelor’s degrees in a variety of fields, and an MBA program.

 All of these schools are situated contiguously on our beautiful forty-five acre campus on the road to the scenic suburb of Panorama above the metropolis of Thessaloniki, Greece’s second largest city.

Anatolia has been in existence for more than 125 years. It has faced every type of adversity, endured three wars, been forced to change location three times, including a move from Asia Minor to Greece in 1924. The school has overcome all of these setbacks to emerge as a strong and vibrant international center of learning preparing young men and women for the challenges of the 21st century. Anatolia is currently the home to over 2000 students. It not only provides to students a strong foundation for the academic and professional world but also prepares them for global citizenship.

Together with the Board of Trustees, the students, faculty, staff and alumni of Anatolia, I take great pride in welcoming you to our academic community, and I invite you to learn more about the ways and means through which you might also become a part of the Anatolia legacy.
