The American College of Sofia

Bulgaria Grade:
Accreditation: Average Class size: School Type:Day | Coeducational | Boarding | Curriculum:

School Description:

The American College of Sofia is one of the oldest American educational institutions outside the borders of the continental United States. We have operated continuously since 1860, except for a 50-year hiatus during World War II and the communist period, with a mission of providing a high-quality college preparatory curriculum and producing graduates who can serve Bulgaria and the world. Our students, most of whom are Bulgarian, are unusually bright, curious and motivated; they routinely gain admission to some of the worldapos;s most competitive universities, and our teachers describe the experience of working with them as a career high-point. We continue to take very seriously our service-oriented mission, and seek teaching and administrative candidates with vision and a desire to make a difference. The College also offers great opportunities for professional growth and personal enrichment, including generous support for professional development, an accomplished and dedicated faculty, and ready access to the cultural riches of Southeastern Europe. -Selectivity at entry: we admit students only after a successful completion of an ACS admissions exam. -Our students receive a rigorous academic training, which combines acquiring and applying knowledge. -The college offers a well-developed extra-curricular program, assisting students in building their academic skills and becoming well-rounded individuals. -The rigorous academic standards at the college are fostered by the fine combination of Bulgarian and international faculty, professionals with long experience and diverse educational practices. -The interactive methods of progressive education are at the core of our curriculum. -ACS graduates are critical thinkers and problem solvers able to set clear goals and achieve them. They are engaged in social issues and are able to compete with outstanding students world-wide. ldquo;ACS is one of the main shaping forces in my life. It inspired me to embrace my love for studying and it opened my eyes to all the opportunities that were available in the world. I sincerely hope that my daughter is lucky enough to have the same educational opportunities as I have had, and going to a high school the caliber of ACS would be a large part of it. When I entered ACS, it was the first time in my life that I actually had to sit down and study a lot. I was also juggling a lot of choir rehearsals so I quickly learned to be very organized and very efficient in everything I did. That 's a skill that has helped me over and over and still helps me now when I have to split my time between my one-year old daughter Anna, lab work, music activities and my friends.rdquo; Polina Kehayova, Class of 1997, went to Swarthmore College and Harvard University, working in the area of molecular neurobiology at Harvard University
