Junior Elite Athlete Programme & Elite Athlete Programme
The Junior Elite Athlete Programme and the Elite Athlete Programme are the only bespoke educational programmes offered in Greece for students who wish to combine high academic aspirations with top sporting performance.
Along with the provision of high quality educational services, CGS has introduced two innovative programmes, the Junior Elite Athlete Programme (for students in years 7 to 9) and the Elite Athlete Programme (for Senior High School students), which fully cover both the academic needs and the sporting requirements of young athletes.
Through the close collaboration between the CGS academic and athletic faculties, these two personalised programmes have been adopted, giving students of outstanding academic and athletic abilities the opportunity to achieve their academic and sporting goals.
The pioneering Junior Elite Athlete Programme is based on the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP), whereas the Elite Athlete Programme is based on the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and on the Greek Senior High school (General Lyceum). Both programmes provide the students / athletes with the opportunity to train in their chosen sports on a daily basis under the supervision of top coaches.
