Welcome Message from the Principal

Principal - Bridget Justen

American Academy in Al-Mizhar is a private, college-preparatory day school for girls, offering the American Common Core curriculum to Grades 1 to Grade 12. The school's Kindergarten is co-educational, accepting boys and girls aged 3 to 5. Founded in 2005 we are proud to be celebrating our 10th year this year.

The priority at American Academy is to educate girls and young women to the highest quality academic and personal standards essential for responsible, effective lives and for the successful pursuit of higher education upon graduation.


Al-Mizhar American Academy is committed to meeting the needs of families with an international outlook who have chosen an American education. Our mission is to promote intellectual curiosity, independent and critical thinking, communication and problem solving skills, a lifelong passion for learning, and an exposure to and respect for cultural diversity. By expecting academic excellence, we inspire personal growth and develop intrinsically-motivated global citizens who are committed to being leaders, in both community service and environmental responsibility.
