About Us

EF Academy International Boarding Schools prepares students for a global future with an exceptional secondary school education in the US or UK. At EF Academy, we believe in every student’s ability to succeed. We empower them to do so through our renowned curricula, as well as quality one-on-one relationships with teachers and mentors alike. Built into every course is an emphasis on multilingualism and intercultural exchange, which helps distinguish our students’ academic credentials to both university admissions officers and future employers.

Studying in our global classroom strongly promotes academic excellence and enhanced interpersonal communication skills. Our students don’t just learn about multiculturalism, they live it each and every day — in class, during after-school activities, around campus, and in the local community. As EF Academy students hail from 75 countries, they develop an amazing group of friends and a solid network that truly spans the globe. Here you will have beautiful weather and surroundings, fantastic school amenities, meaningful friendships that will last a lifetime, and a safe, clean and peaceful environment.

50+ years of immersive, intercultural learning

When Bertil Hult founded EF in 1965, he believed that immersive experiences are essential to the deepest learning. Today, as part of EF, experiential learning sits at the heart of our modern EF Academy education. Since day one, we've provided students from around the world with the opportunity to grow into confident, resilient, life-long learners ready for a global future.

Our philosophy

We believe that living and learning in an international community helps make the world a better place. Through individual and collective learning, we empower young people from all nationalities and backgrounds to realize their full potential, become open-minded individuals and make a positive impact in their communities and in the world.

Our place

Our international school education is fuelled by creativity, innovation and choice. Our campuses are strategically set in New York, Pasadena and the academic heart of the UK because they offer boundless learning and professional opportunities for our students to explore. As part of EF, we maintain an integrated global support system for our families with 24 local offices around the world.

Our people

Our people are what make our community so special. In fact, we've come to think that "EF" also stands for "extended family". We are passionate, interculturally trained educators with vast international experience who speak 20 languages between us. We are our students' 360 support away from home, a responsibility that we hold to the highest level.
