American Community School Beirut

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.

Identity Statement

ACS is an accredited, not-for-profit, independent and secular American College Preparatory School serving a multi-cultural international student body. ACS provides internationally-enriched, standard-based curricula, preparing students for the International Baccalaureate, the Lebanese Baccalaureate, and the American College Preparatory Diplomas.

High School Diploma Program

The American Community School Diploma is based on the American model and is awarded after successfully meeting all graduation criteria. Students accumulate credits toward graduation and credits are earned based on final grades and meeting the seat-hour threshold in the class. A student must complete all graduation requirements in order to graduate with his or her class.

  • A minimum of 26 credits are required.
  • Transfer students will have their official transcripts reviewed and individual programs of study will be developed when deemed necessary.
  • Students must earn a minimum grade point average of 2.00 on a 4-point scale.
  • Students with individualized learning support plans, developed by ACS, must meet all of their objectives to fulfill graduation requirements.

International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program

The IB Diploma Programme is designed as an academically challenging and balanced programme of education with final examinations that prepares students, normally aged 16 to 19, for success at university and life beyond.

The programme is normally taught over two years and has gained recognition and respect from the world's leading universities.

The American Community School Beirut was the first IB authorized school in Lebanon to offer the IB DP Programme in 1995. The programme started in 1996 with only a few students and it grew over the years.

Lebanese Baccalaureate (LB) Diploma Program

The LB Programme is one of the three programs offered by the American Community School Beirut. This programme is offered to students who carry only the Lebanese Nationality or to others who choose to study it.

LB students at ACS are first introduced to the LB Programme through Social Studies and Math instruction in grade 8; then the full LB Programme is implemented in grades 9 through 12.

I attended ACS from 1967 to 1969, which was my 2nd and 3rd grades. I would love to visit it now!
