Founded by American educators and philanthropists in 1878, the American Collegiate Institute (ACI) is an independent, co-educational high school which prepares students for higher education in Turkey and abroad. ACI’s mission is to develop the personal, social and environmental responsibility of students who are bilingual in Turkish and English.

Visits from university representatives are welcome from 12:20 to 13:10 only.

ACI also holds a large university and college fair in early October.

ACI is about a 30-minute taxi ride from the Adnes Manderes Airport, Izmir’s International Airport. Flights are plentiful and convenient from Istanbul, and there are direct flights from cities in Europe.
