American College of Thessaloniki

ACT, the tertiary division of Anatolia College, is accredited in the United States by NECHE (New England Commission of Higher Education). In addition to ACT having full NECHE accreditation, the undergraduate programs delivered at ACT are also validated in the EU through The Open University. 


Founded in 1886 by American Protestant missionaries in Asia Minor, Anatolia relocated to Thessaloniki in 1924.


Paramount to our mission is our institution’s contribution to society while cultivating students' democratic and civic awareness, enhancing a sense of individual and social responsibility, and creating a spirit of esteem for others, social institutions, and the environment.

Coupled with graduate programs that sustain and develop our strong ties with industry and community partners, we offer relevant, flexible and engaging professional training opportunities provided by field experts which enhance the participants’ skills-based life-long learning.

Student services

ACT’s Student Service Office operates one of the largest community service programs in Greece. As the first post-secondary institution in Greece to introduce service and community programs to such a large percentage of its student body, ACT collaborates with over 40 NGOs, providing students with the unique opportunity to volunteer and give back to the community while learning about the local culture, history, customs and economy. 

These programs reflect the community-focused mission that the institution as a whole ascribes to.
