In 1986 the American Academy opened its doors on Despina Pattichi Street Limassol to both primary and secondary school children with an initial enrolment of 50 pupils. In 2000 the school opened its first Nursery and Reception classes. In the same year it successfully created boarding facilities to cater to international students. In 2001 we expanded our educational influence by creating an Educational Learning Centre to assist students with extra lessons and top-up subjects as well as dealing with students who have learning difficulties such as dyslexia. In 2001, recognising the demand for private Greek education, the American Academy in Limassol started a Greek secondary school. 2016 marked the creation of a full-time secondary level Sports School.
