WELCOME TO ASD!
Welcome the American School of Douala website. If this is your first time here please browse through the various pages to see for yourself what our school has to offer. We have a rolling admissions policy so students can start classes throughout the school year.
Our mission is to provide a quality, U.S. style academic program in a supportive, multicultural setting. We work hard to encourage our students to reach their maximum potential. We welcome national and international students and their families from all religious and cultural backgrounds.
Our academic program is based on rigorous standards including the U.S. Common Core. Our teachers design lessons that engage and motivate students, while helping them develop the critical thinking skills that they will need to be successful throughout their lives.
A selection of Advanced Placement courses are offered in the high school to provide our students with a solid college preparatory education and to help them earn acceptance to top universities in the U.S. and around the world.
ASD is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA), a U. S. accrediting agency that provides families with an assurance of quality in all aspects of school life.
We believe that a full educational experience needs to go beyond classroom instruction. We offer a wide range of after school extracurricular activities for students of all ages including arts, music, and sports. Our school facilities include a playground and soccer field, a gymnasium, a swimming pool and an auditorium.
Class sizes are small, so students receive significant personal attention. The school year runs from mid-August to mid-June with after school activities Tuesday through Friday.
