The American International School-Salzburg is a boarding and day school committed to the college-preparatory education of conscientious young men and women. The academic and boarding programs nurture the students' intellectual growth and artistic potential, as well as their social, physical, and personal development. The school community is guided by and dependent upon self-discipline, mutual respect, integrity, care, and compassion. The school aspires to prepare students to succeed in further studies, to exercise informed judgment, and to become active and responsible members of society.
The school is small with over 85% of our students full-time boarders. The school’s philosophy and mission—in our opinion—can only be achieved in a small community where everyone is familiar and comfortable, supervision is optimal, and trust and respect reign. Our maximum capacity is 125 students with just under 100 of these boarding in our dormitories. As a true boarding school, our pastoral care programs, calendar, expectations, and academic requirements are tailored to the needs and goals of the students in residence.
Our student body is extremely diverse and it is not unusual for us to have over 25 nationalities represented within our community. There is no majority of any one nationality. The curriculum and diploma reflect the best of the private, American boarding-school tradition, and, therefore, nearly all of the full-time teachers as well as the resident staff members are US citizens, trained in pedagogy in American universities.
As an American college-preparatory school, our curriculum and diploma reflect the best of the long tradition found in private schools in the US. All subjects of study will lead to coursework at the AP level by the 12th grade. It is typical that most students will graduate from AIS-Salzburg having taken between 4 and 8 AP courses and 4-6 AP examinations. As these courses reflect a level of work which is representative of firstyear university courses, the challenge is very real. Such a challenging academic program, we feel, can be offered in an environment where structure, assistance, and care are optimal.
Through the AP program of courses and examinations, our graduates are fully qualified to attend universities and colleges around the world.
