Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to the American School of Antananarivo. Founded in 1969, ASA offers an American-style curriculum and is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools in the United States of America. ASA is authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization to offer the Primary Years Program to students in the elementary section, and (beginning this school year!) the Diploma Program in grades 11 and 12.

The ASA mission is to provide an internationally recognized college preparatory education, fully accredited in the USA, which emphasizes academic excellence within a well-rounded program. ASA staff and parents foster a mutually supportive, warm school community with high ethical standards in academic and social life, fully utilizing the richness of the school’s cultural and international diversity. The ASA values individual students and enables their full development to produce successful, confident, adaptable, and responsible members of their community.

This parent-student handbook contains pertinent information regarding structures, policies and procedures that have been put in place to support the Mission and Vision of the school. Our hope is that the handbook will answer many questions that you may have about ASA, however please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
