Proud to become a charity

When ACS International Schools started in 1967, so did our commitment to provide high quality international education and to positively impact the communities we serve. Over 50 years on, while trends in education come and go, our founding principles remain. They’re at the heart of everything we do. Please watch our video below 'ACS - investing in our future' to learn more.

In 2018, we became a UK-registered charity and ACS International Schools In America Inc. a 501(c)(3) non-profit organisation, was established in the US. You can read more about our work in our latest annual report here.

ACS has already invested over £800,000 in means-tested bursary places, providing opportunities for students to benefit from an ACS education and, in turn, enriching our community. In our next 2020-21 academic year, over 50 students will benefit from bursary places worth over £1.1m. In addition to the significant sums we already commit, we also invest in campus facilities to enhance our students’ learning and support teaching excellence.

Working in Partnership

We work internationally and locally in partnership with schools (primary, prep, secondary and independent senior schools), higher education institutions, corporate partners and communities to share expertise and resources to foster community engagement. Our students benefit too. Our partnerships enhance their curriculum and extend their learning beyond the classroom. They instil the importance of caring for others and being a responsible global citizen.
