Inter-American School


Inter-American School IAS, Quetzaltenango, Guatemala

Our mission is to promote academic excellence in a Christ-centered environment, prepare life-long learners who will offer their God-given talents and passions to the world, and foster a community that seeks to address the needs of others through a life of Christian service.


A place to learn and grow together

From the beginning, IAS has provided educational opportunities to students who wish to experience a North American system of education, for many in hopes of eventually entering higher education in either the United States or Canada. The school strives to enable students to move easily between schools with U.S. based curriculum.

IAS is proud of its multi-national constituency. It encourages students to be loyal citizens, to become competent in both English and Spanish languages, to appreciate North American and Guatemalan (both Hispanic and Mayan) cultures, and to build lasting bridges of understanding between nations and peoples.

Core Values

Christ-centeredness permeates all aspects of the educational program as faith and learning are integrated through an unswerving commitment to Biblical principles.

An excellent education enables students to grow academically, socially, spiritually and physically in an English immersion environment that prepares each student for success at the university level.

A dedication to civic responsibility based on the belief that everyone possesses inherent worth and value and has the potential to make a positive impact on the world.

A commitment to integrity in our accounting, administration, communication and instructional practices.

An intentional program that fosters authentic community among staff, teachers and students and extends beyond as students are encouraged and given opportunities to serve others in the surrounding community.


We recognize that God’s provision often comes through many generous supporters of IAS, both in finances and in prayer. We consider any support received as an investment in our mission of providing Christian education and discipleship in the lives of our students.


IAS currently holds joint accreditation through the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the Middle States Association (MSA).
