The American School of Puerto Vallarta is a small, US-accredited, co-ed, college preparatory school, which strives to be an exemplary international learning community that nurtures each student’s full potential. We are a unified, caring community that focuses on learning and school improvement. We offer an American model of education, which incorporates the Mexican education system. The American School of Puerto Vallarta prohibits discrimination in employment, educational programs, and activities on the basis of race, national origin, color, creed, religion, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or associational preference. The school also affirms its commitment to providing equal opportunities and equal access to School facilities. Our goal is to sustain a community of individuals representing diverse cultures and experiences. Therefore, the admissions committee seeks to build classes of intellectually capable students who bring the most diverse and interesting perspectives possible to the school community.


Enrollment is contingent upon compliance with basic academic and behavioral standards. We consider both the school’s ability to serve a student’s educational needs and the student’s ability to take advantage of the school’s resources to make a positive contribution to the life of the school. We are a small school with only one group per grade level, so our admission process is highly competitive. Students with siblings who are already enrolled, dependents of ASPV employees or alumni and legacy students are given priority in admission.
