ACS International Schools in America Inc.
ACS International Schools in America Inc. is a non-profit organisation based on the East Coast that supports education around the world. Our mission is to raise awareness of and support for ACS International Schools education allowing more students to benefit from the wonderful opportunities offered by the schools, and help change lives.
We all have a stake in the future, and through your support, you have the power to help young people fulfil their potential and to offer students the best opportunity to succeed.
Learning happens everywhere – in the classroom, through opportunities and activities beyond the classroom, on the sports field and through meeting the melting pot of nationalities that make up our school communities. At the heart of our teaching we value and inspire each student’s individuality; encouraging each to take responsibility for their actions and to see themselves as reflective global citizens who can contribute to a more peaceful and sustainable world.
The Excellence Fund supports:
BRITISH STUDIES SUMMER PROGRAM (BSSP) – our residential, multi-disciplinary summer-study course attracts academically able and highly deserving students from across America to live and learn in London for two weeks.
SCHOLARSHIPS – for both the BSSP and full-time study at ACS schools, to bring these incredible opportunities to more students.
CAPITAL PROJECTS – your gift will help to create and accelerate state-of-the-art learning spaces across our UK campuses, that will have immediate impact and value. Your generosity will enable ACS to continue to broaden student access and deliver the best education and environment for our students.
