Educating Tomorrow’s Leaders Today

37 years of International Education

Since 1980, the American School of Valencia has been teaching students to make an insightful impact on our world. Of course, the challenges our world faces today are increasingly complex and require a new mindset of education which encourages innovation, creativity, critical thinking, global awareness, technology integration and collaboration.

Consequently, coming to ASV is not only an academic choice but a lifestyle choice. Our world-class team of experienced educators is engaged in promoting a contemporary approach to educating tomorrow’s leaders today. In order for this approach to be effective, we rely on a cooperative partnership between our students, parents and educators working toward one vision . . . the success of our students.

 

6 Reasons  to Choose ASV

1

International School

Whether it is through one of our three academic curriculums, our multicultural student population, the diversity of our staff, the global mindsets advocated in all aspects of our operations, student exchange programs or the international mindedness standard we set for all of our students, ASV is continually exploring the cutting edge of international education in an authentic and challenging, yet caring environment. Many schools talk about their schools as being “international”, while ASV students actually live the “international” experience . . . day after day.
