Greek Summer, the leading and longest-running summer program in Greece for American high school students, is designed for young people who choose to challenge themselves through immersion in another culture. Over the years since its establishment in 1970, the American Farm School has built a tradition of helping Greek villagers meet their evolving needs through community service projects carried out by Greek Summer participants. The program concludes with a 10-day trip taking in Meteora, Delphi, Athens, Mycenae, Nemea, Nafplio and other archaeological and historical sites of Greece, and culminates with the students climbing Mount Olympus.
During Greek Summer, young Americans live with village families and work to accomplish set goals. Of the nearly 2,000 alumni of Greek Summer, most consider it one of their pivotal growth experiences.
