Working at ACST

The American Cooperative School of Tunis (ACST) has been serving the expatriate community in Tunisia for 60 years. Located at the northernmost point in Africa, on the Mediterranean Sea just a short hop from Europe, this vibrant American international school has a student body of 450 students from more than 60 nations. Tunisia is an amazingly beautiful and historically interesting country that is one of the top tourist destinations for Europeans. 

ACST’s mission of Opening Doors, Hearts, and Minds extends to its teaching staff.  We bring teachers from around the world and work together to learn as we help our students learn and grow. 

We offer a competitive salary and benefits package to overseas hires, which includes furnished housing, utilities, annual flights home, professional learning allowance, health insurance, life insurance, retirement, and shipping allowance.
