A. Foundation

Filekpaideftiki Etaireia is the oldest educational institution in Greece. It 
was founded in Athens in 1836 by three prominent scholars: the paedagogist 
Ioannis Kokkonis, the nation?s paedagogist George Gennadios and the bishop 
Missail Apostolidis. The three innovators? proposal was met with positive 
reaction from the eminent people of the era. Around the fundamental core of 
founders a large circle of benefactors and donators was developed that 
supported the Filekpaideftiki Etaireia. The most important benefactors were 
Apostolos Arsakis, doctor and scholar from Hotahova in northern Ipeiros and  
Michael and Eleni Tositsa from Metsovo, Ipeiros. The action of
Etaireia soon expanded all over Greece. Its greatest offer  however was in the
field of educating female teachers by founding and  operating the Upper or
Girls? Schools, which, for a period of 63 years,  offered Greek women the
chance to be educated and to educate the younger  generation in turn, since
state offered school for men only.

Filekpaideftiki Etaireia is a non-profit charitable educational institution, 
that constitutes from a Body of Associates and from which the Administrative 
Board and the President are elected and administer gratis. The Administrative 
Board consists of twelve members renewed every three years through elections 
held by the General Assembly of Associates. The Administrative Board plans
