We develop intellectually audacious, socially responsible citizens of the world.
Since 1963, The American International School of Conakry has been delivering American-style education to children living in Guinea’s capital city.
Established to provide education to the children and dependents of American Embassy employees and of Americans working in Guinea, AISC has always welcomed children from around the world, including Guineans and those from other African counties and other continents.
For many years, AISC was located on an ocean-front campus in Matam. In 2015, with generous support from the United States Department of State, the school moved to its present larger campus in Nongo, next to the National Stadium.
The instruction at AISC is delivered through the medium of English language and its pedagogy is based on the tenets of American education. AISC has, nonetheless, never been characterized as exclusively “American.” Its location in West Africa, its student and family population from around the world and faculty recruited from countries across the globe have created a truly international school.
Until 2017, AISC taught pupils up through 8th grade (13 years old), and from Grades 9 through 12, AISC students were enrolled in a distance learning program; they came to AISC and were supervised while they did their high school studies through the University of Nebraska High School, eventually graduating with a University of Nebraska High School diploma.
In January, 2017, AISC started its own high school, and now offers education to students from Grades Pre-K through to Grade 12 with dedicated high school teachers. We will graduate our first class with an AISC High School diploma in June of 2019.
