International College (IC)

The International College has a long and illustrious history as one of the finest educational institutions in the world. Founded in 1891 in Smyrna, Turkey, IC moved to Beirut in 1936 at the invitation of the American University of Beirut. IC shares its main campus in Ras Beirut with the American University of Beirut. In addition, the Ain Aar campus, north of the city, is home to 800 students in grades pre-K through middle school.

International College offers challenging academic programs at all levels. Students learn English, French and Arabic, and most graduates are trilingual. At the secondary level students follow one of four curricular tracks: the Lebanese Baccalaureate, the French Baccalaureate, the College Preparatory Program, or the International Baccalaureate.

IC’s 3,400 students come from all over Lebanon, as well as from other countries in the Middle East and around the world. We are proud of our non-sectarian admissions policy and significant financial aid assistance. IC is accredited by both the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Our graduates, who number in the thousands, occupy significant positions in medicine, banking, engineering, commerce and other professions in the Middle East and around the world.
