The American School of Douala is an independent, co-educational, non-sectarian day school, established in 1978. We offer a challenging, university-preparatory education, aligned with the American curriculum, for learners from preschool through grade 12.

We are proud of our warm, family-like atmosphere, and our ability to give individual attention to each child.

We are very culturally diverse, with over 30 different nationalities represented among our student body. We live and teach our school creed, which challenges each of us to

  • Respect all people and their cultures
  • Help my fellow humans whenever I can
  • Protect the environment
  • Do my best in my studies

We hope you will join us at ASD, where we strive to educate our students for the future.

100% university acceptance rate!

Our graduates and alumni have offers from McGill University, Cornell University, Boston College, Florida International University, Carnegie Mellon, Ottawa University, Emory University, Houston Community College, Bryant University, and Boston University.
