Institutional Information - Açı Schools

Institutional Information

Our school which produced its first high school graduates in June 2011 continues to offer its educational services in five different campuses with a program that fully covers from  ages of three to the end of high school. Açı Schools have adopted the principle of reaching the level of “contemporary civilization” as set forth by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. We formed an institution that sets high goals in academic achievement and proactively takes on social responsibility.

Açı Schools, with all their teachers and employees, believe in the potential of our country’s younger generation who are bound by the values ​​and principles of our Republic. Açı Schools are guiding their students to grow up as individuals who do not compromise from their principles and philosophy, for tomorrow’s tough world which is also full of opportunities.

Our school which has actualized Açı project with its employees, students and parents, was established in 1998.  We thank all our stakeholders for their  contributions to our school up until this date as well as  keeping its standards, content, approach and values.
