All successful graduates earn a US High School Diploma. We are proud of the fact that our students go on to attend the university of their choice, anywhere in the world.

ACS Cobham accepts students with a broad range of academic preparation and abilities. We treat all students as individuals and our college counselors motivate them to make the best and most rewarding choices. Importantly, we are more than just academics, and all students are encouraged to participate in a huge range of co- and extra-curricular activities, from charitable work, to community service projects, sports and the arts, both here in the UK and overseas. 

Based on the principle of genuine mutual respect, we strive to bring out the best in each student, guiding all to achieve beyond expectation, and to enjoy the many friendships and advantages of our truly international learning experience.
