In addition to a full academic program, students have many opportunities to participate in extra-curricular and athletic activities on campus. Clubs include PeaceJam, Cinema Club, AstroClub, Traditional Greek Dance, Model United Nations, and many more. We also have soccer, basketball and volleyball teams. The American Farm School participates in various organized athletic tournaments and organized competitions. Clubs and activities are designed to create a well-rounded, holistic educational experience for all students, both residential and day students. We encourage all students to participate in these opportunities.
American Farm School has two high school residence halls. The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Residence Hall consists of 50 double rooms (maximum occupancy 100) and houses the female student population. The Charles and Ann House Residence Hall consists of 60 rooms and houses the male student population in double and triple rooms (maximum occupancy 150).
Living in the residence halls and participating in extracurricular activities are important features of the American Farm School life. Diversity within the student body from all areas of Greece is a key component of the AFS experience. Through exposure to different socio-economic, cultural and educational backgrounds, students build new friendships, expand their social horizons, and increase their understanding of themselves and others.
The Student Services staff is a team of trained professionals who oversee the students’ daily program, residence hall supervision, dining facilities, and student life activities. We also have a full-time doctor and a certified nurse, who is also a trained Student Life staff member. If necessary, students are escorted to Thermi’s Health Center or a local hospital. Additionally, we have a School psychologist on our student support team who facilitates learning and promotes the cognitive, social, and personal development of all students, as well as their psychological well-being. Students can meet individually with the School psychologist to manage stress/anxiety, social problems, self-esteem, or resolve conflicts.
