The creation of Athena University is inspired by the characteristics of the Greek heroine Athena as the guardian of wisdom, knowledge, and learning. We are committed to cultivating future leaders through dedicated teaching, globalization, and entrepreneurship. We strive to turn every student into a respectable professional with social awareness. The core competence of Athena University relies on the bonding among teaching, research, and service of all faculty members. For generations to come, Athena University will thrive through innovation and creativity.
Athena University is proud to be one of the prestigious members of the Athena Education System. The Athena Education System has over 45 years in providing exceptional education services to students in Asia and other parts of the world. The uniqueness of the Athena Education System lies in the mixing of cultural ideas from the West and the East. We strive not only to provide quality education to local students in Washington, but also to parts of the world where quality education cannot be easily accessed.
