Mission Statement

ACS empowers students to solve problems with creativity and integrity, to lead well-balanced lives, and to serve Lebanon and the world community with understanding and compassion.

Quote

Over the course of my 35+ years as an educator, I have learned that having supportive student-teacher relationships enables the kind of inquiry-based, student-centered learning for which ACS is known and recognized. The fact that our teachers value our students not just as learners, but as people, helps to unlock the potential in every ACS student.

Curiosity Fuels Learning

Curious students want to learn. They delve deeper, ask questions, and step out of their comfort zone. And when that happens, they unlock their full academic and intellectual potential. Our supportive learning community and unique programming help our students develop these vitally important qualities. To learn more about the power of curiosity, check out our rollout of Harkness Learning, our Innovation and Design Spaces, Outdoor and Nature Education, and Week Without Walls.

Empowerment Fosters Engagement

We ask a lot from our students. We ask them to think deeply and creatively, to develop new ideas, and to assume the lead in implementing them. In fact, many of our most celebrated programs, such as LEBMUN, Nour International, and TEDx, are student initiatives managed by our student leaders. Empowerment creates a vibrant and engaged community of learners that believes in its ability to effect positive change in their community and the world.

Compassion Builds Community

At ACS, “community” means many things. It begins with our community of students, faculty, staff, and parents. And it extends outward to our neighborhood of Manara, our city of Beirut, the country of Lebanon, and the greater world. From Early Childhood through High School we look for ways to strengthen our community through camaraderie mixed with fun and compassion combined with action.
