We aim to instill a strong sense of community among our students,
while equipping them with the skills to be curious, life-long learners.

Located on 12-acres in Constantia Hills, the American International School of Cape Town (AISCT) is a co-educational institution with over 400 students from over 40 countries ranging in age between 2 and 18 years and instructed by teachers from nine different countries. The school is divided into four sections: EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT CENTRE Grizzly Cubs to Kindergarten 1; ELEMENTARY SCHOOL Kindergarten 2 to Grade 5; MIDDLE SCHOOL Grades 6-8; and HIGH SCHOOL Grades 9-12.

The school follows the American curriculum and offers Advanced Placement (AP) classes. Foreign language instruction in French and Spanish begins in Grade 1. Following the northern hemisphere calendar, the school year begins in August and ends in June. The school day begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 2:50 p.m. After-school activities take place between 3:00 and 4:00 p.m.

AISCT is endorsed as an independent school by the Western Cape Department of Education and is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) based in California, USA.
