Our Newest Pierce Graduates, Already Making us Proud!

Hearty congratulations to the Pierce Class of 2016!

After a lot of hard work, our students accomplished a 97.9% success rate at this year’s Panhellenic school exams, gaining entry into prestigious universities, colleges, and institutes in Greece and abroad. Impressively, 17.5% of the graduating class scored over 18,000 points on the exams, which is three times the national average!

The majority of the Class of 2016 graduates have chosen to continue their studies at a university level, with almost 30% of them enrolled for undergraduate studies at highly competitive universities, including the National Technical University of Athens as well as several Engineering, Medical, and Law schools.

25 of our latest Pierce graduates will carry on being an active part of the ACG family by studying solely at Deree, or by taking part in the Parallel Studies program and combining their Deree bachelor’s degree with studies at a Greek public university.

Over 40 graduates were accepted to leading universities abroad, several of them with a partial or full scholarship!
