Athena is a Pittsburgh-based provider that specializes in finding placements for students who are more comfortable in smaller cities, like Pittsburgh. Athena works to make a big world accessible to our students through smaller programs abroad. At Athena, we are committed to small. We intend to remain a small organization, working with smaller overseas institutions, while serving a small number of U.S. schools. We intend to limit our student numbers at our international sites. We believe this is what leads to quality study abroad.
