The Odyssey Program 
Join us for an Odyssey…and spend five weeks in Greece studying and exploring the land and the culture that is the cornerstone of Western civilization.

The Program will begin and end in Athens where we will visit the Acropolis, the Agora and various museums around the city. Then we will take a boat to the beautiful  island of the Aegean, Spetses, famous for its gorgeous beaches, distinctive architecture and stately mansions.

We will reside in a small hotel with its own swimming pool. Several beaches are within a ten-minute walk. Spetses is close to both Athens and the Peloponnese and will afford us the opportunity to visit such well known historical sites as Epidaurus, Mycenae, Corinth, Nemea, Nauplio, Sparta, Mystra, Olympia, Delphi,  Meteora and the island of Hydra.

Five scholarships, $1,000 each, will be awarded on the basis of academic excellence and financial needs.


Mama Oia

Spetses is a small island two hours from Athens. It is known for the distinctive architecture of its stately mansions, and for its many coves and beaches, some sandy, some rocky, many still rimmed  with pines. Most people travel by bicycles and horse-drawn carriages, which lend a special charm to the island. 


Housing & Meals
On the island and on field trips, students will live in air-conditioned hotels, two per room, with breakfast and lunch provided by the program.
