The American International School-Salzburg is an international, college-preparatory boarding school for students in grades 7 through 12 located in one of the most beautiful and culturally-rich cities in Western Europe. Founded in 1976, AIS-Salzburg has been preparing outstanding international students for success at university and beyond by offering a rigorous academic program, a rich and varied social and cultural activities program, small class sizes and a 3-to-1 student-to-staff ratio. Our school is designed to remain small with a student body of around 100 students at full capacity, thus enhancing individual guidance and instruction and establishing a familiar atmosphere where every student feels cared for personally.
The curricular program of the school is maintained and regularly evaluated by the school’s administration, teaching faculty, and resident-care staff. It complies fully with AP-program guidelines and our policies, teaching materials, and approach to teaching remain consistent with most accredited independent schools in the United States and worldwide. The language of instruction at our school is English and most of the teaching faculty and resident-care staff members are US citizens and native English speakers. Given our historical and educational orientation, it should not be surprising that our students participate in a program which will provide excellent preparation for entrance to universities and colleges in North America.
