School Message

Welcome to AUP

American University Preparatory School (AUP) is an international boarding secondary community whose mission is to bring innovative educational praxes to advance the goals of 21st century learning.
AUP strives to promote a rigorous and interdisciplinary academic program that merges with student-driven research, project-based learning, and technology literacy. We immerse students in a culture of collaboration, creativity, curiosity, and critical thinking with the intended purpose of developing students to be inventors, problem solvers, and leaders in local and global spheres.
We develop our students holistically, attending individually and with earnest interest to their intellectual pursuits, artistic/athletic talents, emotional wellbeing, and moral development. All members of the AUP community strive to model the virtues of honesty, self-discipline, responsibility, harmony, selflessness, and respect for others in an effort to promote the common good.
American University Preparatory School is proudly accredited by the Western Association of Schools & Colleges (WASC).
