On a recent visit to TASIS, I was reminded once again how fortunate, blessed, and privileged I was to be there–both as a student and as an alumna. One doesn’t really “get” how amazing an education at TASIS is until years later. And it’s a gift that keeps on giving.

Become a World Citizen
M. Crist Fleming’s strongest belief was that our best hope of defeating chaos is through education, and 60 years ago she dreamed of a place in which young people from all over the globe could gather, develop an appreciation for one another’s cultures, and work together to make the world a safer and better place. From this vision emerged TASIS, the school she described as “a microcosm of what the world should and could be.”
When you come to TASIS, you’re not just enrolling in a school—you’re joining a tight-knit community. Nine on-campus dormitories house approximately 260 boarding students, and our caring and dedicated residential-life staff promotes a culture of accountability and self-reliance, providing students room to develop into independent young adults.
TASIS is like your second family. You will always have a person who makes you laugh, cry, smile, and enjoy every moment. You will never feel alone, and the most important part is that the teachers make you feel like you’re at home.

Explore the Wonders of Europe
TASIS pioneered the concept of Academic Travel in 1956. Our students have been exploring Europe ever since.
My years at TASIS were the best years of my life because it’s not just a place where you go to learn and work hard. It’s a community full of action, fun events, and amazing people from all over the world. There is always something to do and TASIS has so much to offer. 2014 graduate
