Reflecting on my time here at the American Farm School and Perrotis College, the one idea to which I keep returning, is how privileged I am to lead such a unique institution. For those of you who have had the chance to visit our campus, or are enrolled in one of our many programs, the feeling I describe can come as no surprise. For those for whom this website offers a small glimpse of what we are about, I would like to welcome you – to welcome you to the holistic experience that is the American Farm School.
During my tenure as President, I have worked hard to enhance the programs and services we offer our students and the community at large, with the help of a devoted team of administrators and staff. Together we have looked to develop a program that is current, relevant and reflects the changing needs of this generation, while respecting the long and important history of the American Farm School in Greece and the greater region.
Our country is at a crossroads. Of this, and of the difficulties ahead, there is no question. But I continue to believe that it’s our students’ job to dream big and our job as educators is to set them on the path to making those dreams a reality. Through critical and entrepreneurial thinking, which remain core values in all that we do, we teach them to approach problems with a dynamic outlook that allows any obstacle to be overcome.
At the American Farm School and Perrotis College we believe in learning by doing, and leading by example. Innovation, success and most importantly discovery and personal growth are continuous processes; they are lifelong commitments. Below you can get a glimpse of some of the latest initiatives we are working towards.
We hope that you will continue to appreciate and support our vision and ever-evolving direction. Thank you for understanding how vital the School’s work is, and for helping us grow the minds of Greece’s future.
