The American School campus in Athens

The American School of Classical Studies at Athens is a leading American research and teaching institution in Greece dedicated to the advanced study of all aspects of Greek culture from antiquity to the present day. Founded in 1881, the American School provides students and scholars from a consortium of nearly 200 affiliated North American colleges and universities with the opportunity to explore the full range of scholarly resources in Greece. 

In addition to its academic programs, the School also administers two leading excavations in Greece and two internationally respected research libraries, oversees the excavations and research activities in Greece of its affiliated North American institutions, publishes important monographs and an award-winning scholarly journal, houses a major research laboratory for archaeological sciences, and manages a vast collection of archival material and artifacts pertaining to Greek archaeology, history, and culture — much of which is digitized online and freely available to the public.
