Introduction

Ekpaideftiria Kaloskami was established in 1960 by the late Ioannis N. Kaloskamis, distinguished philologist and teacher. Together with his wife Kyriaki and with the contribution of excellent teachers, he created a contemporary Evening Gymnasium-Lyceum for working students in Keratsini, which is today directed by his children. The goal was to make a social contribution and in particular to give a second chance to students who have not completed their secondary education. Up to now, thousands of alumni have excelled in the arts and sciences, the business world and the public sector.

Ekpaideftiria Kaloskami is a continuously evolving school with a clear social mission. In 2001 we created modern new facilities of European standards, which allow us to develop educational innovations. Up to today, we participate actively in the Life Long Learning and SOCRATES programs and especially in the Grundtvig Action for Adult Education. Our goal is to continue and to expand our contribution to the field of adult education and lifelong learning. We remain inspired and guided by the vision of Ioannis N. Kaloskamis for excellence in education based on ethos.
