Abercorn International School is one of a family of three private schools with a collective track record of providing exemplary education for more than thirty years.
Abercorn School in London was established in 1987, more recently The British International School of New York opened its doors in 2006, and our Austin school opened in 2010.
Our shared mission is to provide the best of private international education in a setting that is safe, nurturing and stimulating.

At Abercorn International School we offer Mandarin and Spanish to all our students, and our low pupil-to-teacher ratios across the school facilitate our practice of customizing our curriculum around each child, never the other way around.
Abercorn is a candidate school for the International Baccaclaureate program.

The teaching staff at Abercorn International School develop multi-culturally astute individuals who are independent thinkers, articulate, compassionate and filled with a strong sense of curiosity.

Tremendous emphasis is placed on courtesy, good manners, confidence and self-esteem.
This is evident even in our very youngest learners and is instilled in every student along with the values of persistence, fortitude, endeavor and integrity, our four pillars of aspiration that underpin everyday life at our school.
We feel these values provide the foundation for helping to create a generation of children prepared and motivated to make a real difference in the world.

Abercorn International School in Austin, TX is an extraordinary school. I know the leaders and owners of this organization and they are people of great integrity. This is reflected in all aspects of their facilities and curriculum - in their course of studies which are current and in keeping with the demands of a global focus and community, in the facilities themselves which are state of the art and, of course, in the healthy meals provided by Whole Foods. My son will soon need choose a school for his children andI will enthusiastically recommend Abercorn International to him! I support the values demonstrated by this fine educational institution - they provide a much needed perspective if we are to continue to thrive in ever growing global opportunities.

this is a fantastic school that offers my children a great education. the teachers are amazing, I love the languages and I love the warm, nurturing atmosphere that is provided. I researched this school in depth before sending my child here and I have been delighted by the experience my child has had. I cant recommend it highly enough.
