Director's Welcome

Welcome to the American School of Yaoundé! We are an independent, not for profit, co-educational school serving students from over 32 countries. Founded in 1964, ASOY serves the local and expat community of Yaoundé, Cameroon. Located in the center of Yaounde, ASOY is an IB World School accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA). We offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP), Middle Years Program (MYP) and the Primary Years Program (PYP). We also started a PreK-3 French/English Bi-lingual program in the 2019-20 school year.

The American School of Yaoundé is an English medium school offering an American style educational program. We serve a Pre-K 3 through grade 12 student population of 205 students. We believe in a well-balanced education of academics, community service, arts and a full complement of after school offerings. We strive to integrate the IB Learner profile across the curriculum, so our students can think critically and become responsible and effective leaders. Our graduates have attended universities and colleges in the United States, Canada, and Europe.  

I welcome you to our campus. If you are new to Yaoundé, please stop in and learn about our school. I look forward to speaking with you.
