With the support of the Network of International Christian Schools, the American International School opened in 2006.
Located in East Legon, Accra, Ghana, AIS serves students from ages 3 to 18 as an American Dual-Accredited College Preparatory School.
Our faculty population is represented by 65% from the United States and 35% are Expatriates from various countries. We are accredited by ACSI and MSA/CIWA.
AIS offers (AP) Advanced Placement classes to our High School students to qualify for an honors degree and University credits.
AIS uses modern teaching techniques and best practices to prepare students to lead and interact in a global society.
With cooperative learning in a culturally diverse classroom environment, we intentionally keep class sizes small to allow us to work closely with each child and develop a program to suit individual needs.
At each grade level, students are given the opportunity to explore real-world problems, think critically, work independently and in groups to come up with solutions that challenge the status quo.
Using a 6-year plan beginning in 6th grade through 12th, students work through several exercises and activities in advisory sessions to prepare them sufficiently for college.
As a Christian school, our teachers are dedicated and care for the whole child.
Our weekly chapel programs are run by committees that include teachers and students. Our weekly advisory groups help to foster accountability and discipleship across grade levels and instill good character qualities.
The small school and class environments help create a unique family culture where students and staff care for one another.
At AIS, students are given the opportunity to sharpen professional skills such as collaboration and communication to impact the world.
Teachers guide these emergent leaders to make the change by using strategic planning methods and innovative implementation practices.
Students are challenged to exhibit caring character traits through service projects and community initiatives.
