Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

EAC is a friendly, welcoming school with buildings that are integrated with the greenery - a wonderful place for a full day school.
Founded more than 50 year ago, EAC is recognized for its solid tradition and experience in providing excellent academic programs, following the American and Brazilian curricula. EAC prepares its students to be successful in their academic lives either in Brazil or abroad.

EAC is a learning community that fosters globally minded, innovative thinkers and learners who are thoughtful and reflective individuals. EAC accomplishes its mission by nurturing its passions and taking accountable risks while continually striving for success.

Students are expected to become organizers, problem solvers and leaders through our service learning, class projects and science fairs. Tying this all together is development of the heart: empathy and understanding of others in our international environment is a daily part of life at EAC. This is what makes EAC a family.

Teaching approach of the school

The curriculum at EAC provides a roadmap for how EAC will accomplish its mission: through standards based on US and Brazilian curriculums as well as its community values of life-long learning, critical and creative thinking and responsible world citizenship.
