  • Mission

    AAI's mission is to develop followers of Jesus Christ who live with a focus on eternity; to provide students with a US-style of education based on the highest standards of educational excellence; and to provide a caring community where students are taught to be critical in their thinking, multicultural in their understanding, and compassionate in their dealings with others.

  • Vision

    AAI will be the premier international Christian school whose graduates thrive as life-long learners; follow Christ and live with a focus on eternity; readily engage in diverse cultures and communities; and mature as whole persons.



    Alliance Academy International is an independent, Christian international school located in Quito, Ecuador, which serves children from the missionary, business, professional, entrepreneurs, diplomatic, and Christian ministry communities in the capital city of Ecuador.  AAI's programs, services and ministry are built on the foundations laid by Christian & Missionary Alliance missionaries who founded the school in 1929.  These programs and services that have achieved international quality are the result from the investment of hundreds of committed professional Christian educators over the decades rival those of any school in Latin America.


    The Academy has a well-deserved reputation for academic excellence; breadth of educational opportunities and programs for students of varying gifts and ability levels; extensive programs in the arts and athletics; and an unwavering commitment to Christian ministry and outreach.  Alliance Academy International was first accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), in 1965, and by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) in 1993.  The school has maintained full accreditation and good standing with these accrediting agencies through the present.


    AAI has a current capacity to serve 600 students in preschool through high school. Today, more than 30 nationalities from the 5 continents are represented in our student body as well as a wide variety of cultural groups and languages. Our students reflect the international reality of AAI by receiving a full immersion education in the English language, which drives us beyond a bilingual education. More than 70% of students whose native language is not English adopt English as their second language.

    Annually, even before graduating, they choose to continue their university studies in South America, North America, Europe, and Asia.


    There is a great spirit on campus as students from very diverse spiritual backgrounds are challenged to consider the veracity and reality of Christian faith, make a commitment to follow Jesus Christ, become discipled in their faith, and given opportunities to express that faith in very unique and creative ways.


    AAI embraces and adheres to a statement of faith composed of the following tenets, reflective of the school’s historical identity and ongoing commitment as an evangelical Protestant Christian ministry.

    • There is one God, who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
    • God the Father is the first member of the Trinity. He is revealed as the Creator and Sustainer of life, and as a Father, desires to live in intimate and harmonious relationship with His creation. He is the Author of our salvation through which He demonstrates His love, grace, mercy and forgiveness, as well as His authority, sovereignty, righteousness and holiness. That we may know Him, He sent us His Son to reveal to us in person the Father’s heart and character.
    • Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all that believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures. He is now at the right hand of the Majesty on high as our great High Priest. He will come again to establish His kingdom of righteousness and peace.
    • The Holy Spirit is a divine person sent to indwell, guide, teach, empower the believer and convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.
    • The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.
    • Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God; he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ. The portion of the impenitent and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment; and that of the believer, in everlasting joy and bliss.
    • Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ, and those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life and become the children of God.
    • It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be sanctified, being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service.
    • The Church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, and are born again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head of the Body, the Church, which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the Gospel to all nations. The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the Gospel, and observance of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
    • The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus will be personal and visible.
