Mission Statement January 28, 2005
The American College of Sofia is an independent, highly selective, co-educational not-for-profit secondary school. With English as the primary language of instruction, the College offers a rigorous core curriculum, enriched by an array of elective courses and extra-curricular activities. While the College’s primary mission is to educate Bulgarian youth, it embraces qualified students of all nationalities, races, and faiths in the belief that a wide variety of students will enrich educational opportunities for all.
The College integrates the values and best practices of American pedagogy with the rich educational traditions of Bulgaria and Europe. It aspires to prepare students to meet the most demanding criteria of any university in the world. The College enables students to develop critical thinking skills, participate in respectful exchanges of diverse opinions, and become enthusiastic lifelong learners. In so doing, students will learn to demonstrate sensitivity to the global human condition and the environment, cherish democratic values, and become responsible citizens and leaders.
