The International Academy - Amman is a place of vision, principle and aspiration. Dedication to excellence propels it forward and upward, year after year. The four IAA Pillars, Leadership, Duty, Cultural Heritage and Acceptance, are the basis of a clearly defined mission: to make our Learners of Today, our Leaders of Tomorrow.
IAA is an equal opportunity, nonprofit, non-commercial educational institution offering an acclaimed curriculum at a world-class standard. It is an international day school existing within a Jordanian context, promoting both global perspective and national heritage. This defining principle is reflected in the diversity of IAA staff, representing more than ten countries around the world and instilling a robust spirit of interculturalism within the school.
Accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the New England Association of Schools (NEASC), IAA now offers a streamlined program beginning in Pre-K and culminating with Grade 12.
Most IAA graduates enjoy placement at competitive or top-tier schools throughout the United States, Britain and Canada.
The IAA curriculum is a rigorous symbiosis of the finest curricula from around the globe, employing modern and holistic educational approaches. At the Primary level, IAA utilizes an eclectic program based on the British curriculum for literacy and the Australian curriculum for mathematics. This curriculum is further enhanced by the interdisciplinary International Primary Curriculum (IPC) covering a range of subjects and the Jordanian Ministry of Education curriculum for Arabic language. At the Secondary level, IAA is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School authorized for the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the IB Diploma Programme (DP). IAA also offers a myriad of extra-curricular activities, rich opportunities to exercise leadership, athleticism, artistry, oratory, citizenship and more, providing every student with a chance to explore his/her unique talents.
The sky is the limit at IAA.
