A Welcome from Head of School, Nathan Swenson
I always welcome the opportunity to showcase our wonderful school to prospective students and their families, and to the fellow education professionals who frequently visit to find out the secret of our success.
We are a leading American curriculum secondary school in Ho Chi Minh City, inspiring and challenging students aged 11 to 18 years old to achieve personal excellence.
Our highly qualified and dedicated teachers are student-focused, committed to developing each child’s unique interests, abilities, and ambitions. This approach creates a culture of achievement in our close-knit community of over 300 students, demonstrated in our graduates’ U.S. $1m scholarship fund to overseas universities.
We lay the foundations for success with 100% English language immersion and a rigorous American accredited curriculum from age 11. At the same time, we offer an extensive Vietnamese Studies Program to ensure our students maintain their Mother Tongue and cultural roots. ISHCMC - American Academy is proud to be the only school in Vietnam to offer university-level courses through both Syracuse University Project Advance (SUPA) and Advanced Placement (AP), giving your child unparalleled competitive advantage.
Above excellence in academics, our vision commits us to empowering our students to reach their potential across all endeavors – in the arts, sports, technology, and elsewhere. I welcome you to visit us to experience first-hand what sets ISHCMC – American Academy apart in the world of education.
Mr. Nathan Swenson
