The American International School of Abuja was founded in 1993 when a group of parents and U.S. Embassy officials recognized the need for a school that would adequately prepare students who reside in Nigeria to continue their education in American schools overseas.

AISA quickly grew to become the most prominent international school within Abuja and gained a diverse International population. AISA now has over 40 different nationalities represented among our student and staff population with the majority of students and faculty being from overseas. AISA is committed to maintaining a strong culture where diversity is respected. We are very much a part of the community around us and every year take time to celebrate the local culture.

AISA endeavors to be a world-class international school that develops students’ skills, knowledge and character to enable them to achieve their full potential and pursue their dreams. Thus, the American International School of Abuja uses the US common core curriculum and is accredited in the US by MSA-Cess. The American International School of Abuja is also one of two AP capstone schools in Africa. AP Capstone fosters the research, argumentation, and communication skills that are at the core of college readiness and essential for global citizenship and lifelong learning.

Our rigorous American curriculum and AP capstone program challenges and empowers our students to attend universities all over the world, not just in Nigeria or America. To that end, 100% of our graduating students get into universities worldwide. We have experienced guidance counselors preparing students to make the best impression for universities and we regularly graduate students into some of the top universities worldwide.
