Annual ACS Gala

Gala 24

As a nonprofit school, our annual gala is our largest fundraiser and has a tremendous and positive impact on our students. The gala enables us to take our school to the next level in a way that is not possible with tuition alone. By investing in the excellence of our teachers and our programs, we are ensuring ACS continues to deliver the very best education for our students to thrive in a world yet to be imagined. 

The generous support from our community enables ACS to continue to invest in opportunities for excellence. Investing in the future leaders of tomorrow requires great support of their education today!

2024 ACS Gala

On March 2, 2024, our ACS community gathered at the St. Regis Saadiyat, uniting in our shared belief in education's transformative power. With the support of esteemed guests and sponsors, the 2024 ACS Gala was a resounding success, raising nearly AED 1 million in one evening! These funds will bolster our efforts in key strategic areas: Personalized Learning, Faculty Investment, Next-Generation Education Innovation and Arabic Teaching Advancement.

Under the theme "The Future is Now," the gala showcased ACS's dedication to empowering students as tomorrow's leaders, equipped with the values to make a positive global impact. The Future is Now—for our students, for education and for ACS.
