The American School of Grenoble was founded in 1993 as a response to the needs of the Grenoble area English-speaking business community. Today the American School of Grenoble serves as an independent, non-denominational, non-profit, college preparatory coeducational school. We are the only middle and high school in the Grenoble area offering all of our classes in English. Our goal is to enable students to reintegrate into any English speaking school and to prepare its high school students for higher education while providing a structure where students will acquire the added benefit of cultural, linguistic and intellectual diversity.
ASG is accredited with the Council of International Schools, and our diploma is, therefore, recognized worldwide.
We have partnered with the French National Education system, and as such are hosted by and situated within a large French public high school, the Cité Scolaire Internationale, or CSI. Our students are engaged in everyday student life at the CSI, through classes taught in French as well as sharing their facilities, and truly benefit from the immersion in the French culture and language.
