Uskudar American Academy, which was founded in 1876, is one of the most prestigious schools in Turkey. Our academic goals and expectations of our students are high. The school, with a history approaching 140 years, has not only given importance to academic success but even more importantly to the nurturing of morally-upright and free-thinking young people. According to the requirements of this era and even those of the future, we take pains to protect humanitarian values and ethics recumbent the principles of our education.
Our aims are to give our students a broad education and foster students who are; self-confident, fully developed socially and intellectually, fluent in English with knowledge of the culture behind the language and morally upright, global citizens.
Our goal is to enable our students to select the university which best suits their characters, abilities and interests. To this end we prepare our students for both the Turkish university entrance examination and to be successful in applications to overseas universities.
Our objective is to create many opportunities for our students to further their education both in Turkey and abroad and to assist them in making the right decision in the final stage of this process.
