We are accepting applications for admission for the 2018-2019 school year. seats are available in MOST grade levels.

We appreciate your interest in the American Community School of Abu Dhabi. ACS is a non-profit, US Embassy sponsored, college preparatory school with US accreditation.

In 2017-2018, ACS celebrates 45 years of academic excellence. The school opened in 1972 with fewer than 25 classrooms and today we are a thriving campus with over 1,200 students from more than 50 countries.

ACS is driven by student learning. Our American-based curriculum promotes excellence in academics, athletics and the arts. Our dynamic educational approach prepares a culturally diverse student body for a lifelong commitment to learning, service and global citizenship.

The concept of community runs deep at ACS. The campus culture fosters a partnership between faculty, parents and students, as we work together to provide an exceptional environment for student learning and development.

Our goal in the Admissions Office is to make the process of applying to ACS as straightforward as possible. Whether you are applying from the other side of the world or across town, we want to assist you during this process by being welcoming and helpful.

Finding the right school for your children is often the most critical part of any expatriate move and it can be a big challenge as well.

I have two children at ACS and every day I am reminded of why we chose this school for our family. The faculty is dedicated and professional, the administrators are approachable and willing to listen, the parents are always happy to lend a hand and the students are curious, engaged and supportive of one and other.

We encourage you to investigate our website and learn more about ACS.

I look forward to meeting you.

Warm regards,
Penny Lopez
