Preparing tomorrow’s leaders
The Pierce Leadership Academy at the American College of Greece is an experiential three-week summer program in leadership, for international and local students, 13-17 years old. The Academy’s goal is to stimulate intellectual curiosity, expose each participant to fundamental concepts and pathways to leadership, and cultivate skills that are necessary for an aspiring leader, regardless of their sphere of endeavor. The program takes place in Athens, the city where the foundations of Western thought and civilization were first laid out.
Five learning subjects, a holistic experience
What is leadership and what makes a leader?
In this program, participants will develop the confidence and skills required in order to make decisions as effective leaders. With three weeks full of courses, workshops, simulations, debates, and field trip adventures, the Academy is more than just a summer program, it is a holistic experience! Participants investigate areas of interest, becoming exposed to new subjects and academic disciplines, in order to better understand the workings of leadership. They are inspired to challenge themselves in meaningful ways that lead to self-discovery, personal growth, and responsible decision-making.
