English schools in Latin America
The American School of Belo Horizonte was founded in 1956 and is a non-profit independent day school offering a college preparatory education. Our students are prepared to continue their education at the university level, whether it is in the United States, Brazil or elsewhere. Although the emphasis is on academic achievement, we strive to motivate each individual to reach his or her highest potential, as well as stimulate our students to be independent, life-long learners.
The mission of EABH is to provide students with an academically rigorous education in the English language in a nurturing and happy environment.
To evolve, in harmony with the city of Belo Horizonte and the state of Minas Gerais, into a model institution of educational excellence, becoming the community’s premier provider of an internationally focused quality education in the English language.
Belo Horizonte is located in the southeastern part of Brazil.
