School Profile

The InterAmerican Academy (IAA) is a private, non-profit day school governed by an eight-member Board of Directors and supported by tuition and fees. The program is co-educational, non-residential, and provides English language instruction from nursery (age two) through grade twelve. We are the only AP Capstone school in the country and surrounding region with students having the opportunity to earn University Credits through our 16 AP courses.


The academy offers a demanding college preparatory curriculum leading to a U.S. high school diploma. Although the courses are designed to meet U.S. diploma standards, we prepare students for entrance into colleges and universities around the world. Most seniors choose to attend post-secondary institutions in the

United States, Europe, Canada, and Ecuador.  IAA is accredited by Cognia and is recognized by the Ecuadorian Ministry of Education.


IAA’s current enrollment is about 290 students. The graduating class of 2022 consisted of 20 students. Our faculty is comprised of 37 professionals who hold teaching credentials which meet Cognia standards. Most of our faculty is proficient in two or more languages. The IAA community is highly diverse, with a student population from over 28 different nationalities.


At IAA, we value community service and responsible global citizenship and promote the integral development of each student within a multicultural setting. Students can choose from a number of extracurricular activities including varsity sports such as soccer, basketball, volleyball, and swimming, National Honor Society, Student Council, and Model United Nations.
