Alliance Academy International was founded in 1929 to provide a quality, U.S.-style education for the children of missionaries living in Ecuador. Since then, the school has grown to its present size of around 600 students from Preschool through 12th grade. The majority of our students come from Ecuador, the United States, and Asia, as well as from all parts of the world with many different cultural backgrounds.
Over 31 nationalities are represented among our students. Some of our main characteristics include mutual respect and learning by sharing our differences.
Alliance Academy International exists:
Alliance Academy International fulfills all the legal requirements of the Ecuadorian Ministry of Education and has internationally recognized accreditations. Therefore, our students graduate with both the Ecuadorian and the American diplomas.
Faculty members are qualified native English-speakers from different nationalities. We have specialists in art, computers, music, physical education, and Spanish. Moreover, a special education department is provided to assist students with learning differences and EFL (English as a Foreign Language).
Our students graduate with two diplomas, an Ecuadorian diploma and a US diploma. Therefore, they can continue their formal education in colleges and universities in the US, Ecuador, Canada, Europe, and Asia. Alliance Academy International is a testing center for various college entrance exams. Our Advanced Placement (AP) program provides the opportunity for our graduates to enter colleges and universities with pre-earned college credits.
We are an international Christian school with a US curriculum. As part of the school's academic curriculum, students receive one Bible period per day and attend chapel once a week. Students of all creeds are welcome.
All classes are taught in English (with the exception of one-period-a-day Spanish classes for Secondary students, and Elementary art, also in Spanish). Students whose first language is not English must take an English placement test and demonstrate that they are at an acceptable level to be admitted to our school. AAI has an extensive English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program designed to offer additional support to students whose primary language is not English.
The school hours for PS3 through 12th grade is from 8:00 am – 3:30 pm
