About Us

ACST has been opening doors, hearts, and minds for international and Tunisian students for 60 years. Our students come from around the world, speak many languages, and are united in their love of learning. As an American school, we emphasize developing well-rounded students. We value academics, athletics, and the arts, as well as service to one’s community and to those less fortunate.

We are accredited by the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges (MSA) and are authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP).  We are led by a Board of Governors, a leadership team, and international and Tunisian teachers. Our facilities are modern and ever-improving. We have a dynamic and skilled group of local employees who keep our school safe and running efficiently, and our local staff contributes actively in school life.

What the world needs most is openness: Open hearts, open doors, open eyes, open minds, open ears, open souls.Robert Muller

Opening Hearts

ACST has been opening the hearts of students, staff, and parents for 60 years. What began in 1959 with eight students in an old barn has become a special place where more than 5,000 students have come and opened their hearts to each other and to learning.
