Expats moving to Greece with children should apply at schools as far in advance of the move as possible.
The Greek education system is administered by the Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs. By law, all children between six and 15 years old are required to attend school. During these years, public schooling is tuition-free.
Expats legally residing in Greece are entitled to send their children to a local public school at no cost. However, this isn’t the most practical option because of the language barrier. Most expats opt to send their children to either a private or international school as these are better equipped to handle the unique needs of expat students.
