Located conveniently near Washington, DC, our North American Office (NAO) serves the needs of ACS's prospective families and the companies that support them. Additionally, the NAO extends our London-based schools' daily availability to families across North America, allowing the type of personalised service for which ACS is so well known.

ACS fully understands the dual demands and challenges of balancing a mobile career with family life. As thought leaders in the field of international education fully engaged in the global mobility industry, we actively contribute to such leading organisations as the:

  • Forum for Expatriate Management
  • National Foreign Trade Council
  • British-American Business Council
  • Families in Global Transition
  • Worldwide Employee Relocation Council
  • Parents League of New York
  • Canadian Employee Relocation Council
  • Independent Educational Consultants Association.

Each year NAO staff traverse North America regularly, visiting nearby Washington, DC, as well as New York, Boston, Houston, Dallas, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Canadian stops have included Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary, and Vancouver.

During these regional visits, team members meet with prospective ACS parents, their children, and key international human resources and relocation professionals, educating them about our four-campus school system, its impressive academic offerings, and the extraordinary support ACS offers families in transition. Other regional events have included ACS Alumni & Friends Association gatherings, fundraisers for youth-serving ACS Foundation-supported programmes, and exhibitions and presentations during global mobility conferences.

ACS actively recruits experienced professional educators throughout North America and around the globe. An active North American travel schedule means ACS can meet outstanding teacher candidates in their hometowns, sometimes even visiting their schools and classrooms.

Within 15 miles of Baltimore-Washington International Airport, the NAO welcomes visitors year round. Our North American team is here to help ACS's prospective families, their sponsoring companies, our Foundation's partners, prospective teachers, and ACS Alumni and Friends Association members residing throughout the US and Canada.

We hope to hear from you in the near future, and look forward to discussing how ACS can best serve you and your family.
