InterAmerican Academy (IAA) is a private, non-profit day school governed by a rotating   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.  The Academy offers a demanding college preparatory curriculum leading to a U.S. high school diploma. Interamerican Academy is a Standards Based Mastery school.  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, formerly AdvancedEd, and is recognized by the Ecuadorian Ministry of Education. 
IAA’s current enrollment is about 270 students. The graduating class of 2023 consists of 20 students.  Our faculty consists of 35 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 29 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, National Honor Society, Student Council, and Model United Nations, along with many other after school activities such as choir, drama, yoga, swimming and dance.

Interamerican Academy went to 100% online instruction in mid March 2020 due to the pandemic. The school year 20-21 remained online for most of the school year, with a few weeks of hybrid instruction in March/April 2021.  For the 2021-2022 school year we began with mostly in person classes with still  a few students connecting from their home countries in different time zones due to travel restrictions or individual family situations.
