Since its founding in 1886, the name of Anatolia has been synonymous with educational innovation and achievement. Located in Thessaloniki, Greece, Anatolia College is a private, non-profit, international learning community imbued with the best ideals of Greek and American education, and one of the very few institutions in the world today that offers education from pre-K all the way to graduate studies, through its various academic divisions.

The IB Middle Years Programme commenced in the Fall of 2013 at the freshman level and has now been introduced into grades 7 to 10 illustrating Anatolia’s commitment to providing a curriculum meaningfully linked to the social, cultural and natural environment the students live in. Anatolia MYP students that follow the Greek curriculum in grades 11 and 12 have achieved a very high success rate in the entrance exams for Greek universities.

First introduced at Anatolia High School in 1997, the IBDP is open to students from all schools and nationalities. Classes at Anatolia are kept small to facilitate a more individualized approach to teaching from its well-qualified staff. The large variety of subjects offered at the DP level allows students to tailor their program of study to their particular strengths and interests. Anatolia IBDP graduates have been accepted at top universities around the world.

Across Anatolia's 50-acre campus of great natural beauty, one finds a residence hall for students wishing to stay on campus, a refectory, two modern libraries, science and computing laboratories, a Green Education Center, a Fabrication Lab, a music room, two theaters, a conference center, a multi-use gym and an open-air track & field court.

An extensive extracurricular program allows students to discover or develop their talent, while a comprehensive scholarship program ensures that worthy students may enroll at Anatolia, regardless of financial circumstance.
