ΣAKA USA Chapter is a newly established chapter, which operates under the ΣAKA organization and as a part thereof. It was founded in April 2018 with the purpose of connecting, uniting and maintaining long-lasting relationships between members of ΣAKA who reside in the United States of America. Our core principles and values are the values of our School and of ΣAKA: fellowship, integrity and respect, values vital for our success as a chapter.
ΣAKA USA Chapter was formed in New York City and is being run by an organizing committee which consists of six alumni. While first being organized in New York City, it will further develop and expand with the establishment of regional chapters across the USA.
ΣAKA USA Chapter’s primary objective is to form a strong, long-lasting network of alumni who live in various states within the United States of America but also with ΣAKA members living in Greece or in other countries (wherever ΣAKA Chapters operate). Our mission is to preserve the Athens College and Psychico College reputation. In addition, we seek to form a strong unity of Greeks who had the privilege of graduating from our prestigious high school. Furthermore, we aim to maintain the connection of ΣAKA members across the globe, by inviting school representatives and by having common initiatives, activities, and events. Through the sponsorship and initiation of those initiatives we will promote, support and honor our Hellenic culture and decent. Some of our long-term objectives include fundraising, giving back to our community, mentoring, as well as assisting students in gaining experience through internship opportunities.
ΣAKA USA Chapter’s objectives also relate to helping students from Athens and Psychico College who, after graduation, have become students in universities in the USA. Our mission will be to connect them with the Chapter, as well as with other students and Professors in US educational institutions. Last but not least, we would like to offer guidance and help regarding their up and coming professional lives.
ΣAKA USA Chapter members represent men and women of different ages and at different stages of their personal and professional lives. ΣAKA USA Chapter members vary from recent high school or college graduates, to well respected, established and successful individuals across a plethora of industries. It is our core belief that all Athens College and Psychico College alumni regardless of age and gender should feel welcomed.
