Summer Application

Get Started at CYA

College Year in Athens welcomes applications from academically strong students who wish to immerse themselves in the study of Greece and/or the world of the eastern Mediterranean.Successful candidates are those who show themselves to be academically motivated, inquisitive, self-reliant, self-disciplined, flexible, and open to experiencing daily life in a European capital city.

The Program does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, religion, sex, or national and ethnic origin. The application form includes no question on any of these matters, and photographs need not be sent before admission has been granted.
