AASSA was formed in 1961 and formally founded in the U.S. in 1977 as a non-profit 501(C) 3 association: to discover and develop ways and means for improving understanding through international education; to improve upon the quality of teaching and learning in Association schools; to facilitate communication and cooperative action between and among all Association schools; and to facilitate cooperative action with national, state, local or non-governmental agencies in the field of international education.
AASSA’s mission is to enhance the quality of education in American/international member schools.
We are a vibrant, membership-driven learning organization promoting visionary leadership, innovative programs, and fiscally sustainable services.
We believe that:
Progressive learning in a safe and collaborative environment is essential to bettering the world.
Respect, trust and compassion generate positive relationships within a learning community.
We are better when we work together!
