Four Panhellenic Exam candidates from the Avlona Youth Detention Facility were successful in the exams, managing to graduate from senior high school despite the difficulties of studying while in prison. The facility also boasted of two candidates in 2015 that received enough grades for university entry as well as another four who succeeded in 2014.
Since the operation of the educational facility in 2003, there have been 20 students from the detention center successful in gaining enough marks to enter university. Eucation Minister Nikos Filis has announced the creation of an institutional framework to offer young prisoners the chance to continue their education beyond secondary school as well as offer services for a second-class school for prisoners in the adult facilities at Avlona.
At the moment, prisoners can attend programs available at correctional facilities that give inmates a chance to complete their high school education.
