American Creativity Academy

The American Creativity Academy (ACA) was founded in 1997 by a group of visionaries who wanted to establish a school in Kuwait which offered a unique blend of an American curriculum while respecting and practicing local values. ACA is fully accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and by Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, and has been authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) since 2008.

The American Creativity Academy is one of the top schools in Kuwait and is the largest system of schools in the region. We have over 4500 students on our ever-growing PreK-Grade 12 campuses and new classrooms are opening each year. We anticipate openings in many teaching areas and we're looking for talented, energetic, and global-minded teachers to join us! ACA is the perfect school to begin your career in international teaching!
