Established in 1947, the American Overseas School of Rome teaches an American international education to Pre-K through Grade 12 students.


The American Overseas School of Rome (AOSR) comprises over 570 students, with approximately one-third from the United States, one-third from Italy, and the remainder from about 51 countries.

The school teaches an American-International education in English from Pre-K to Grade 12. 

The Elementary School offers inquiry-based learning, active learning that starts by posing questions, problems, or scenarios. Our Middle School operates on a schedule designed to maximize the study of core subjects while allowing time for exploration in electives. Students are prepared for the rigorous International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program and Advanced Placement (AP) courses in High School. 

AOSR was the first and remains the only international school in Rome to offer comprehensive coursework in these diploma pathways.

The American Overseas School of Rome is fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. AOSR is a member of RISA (Rome International Schools Association), CIS (Council of International Schools), and ECIS.


The school requires a one-time, non-refundable Capital Assessment Fee of €5.500,00 per family. School fees range from $11,300 – $26,300. To see a breakdown of school fees and extra services, click here.


Although the school accepts applications all year, early application in January/February for September entry is suggested due to space constraints. Individual applications received during the summer and school year will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Admission to middle and high school is based on transcripts, report cards, school documents, recommendation letters, and interviews. Students may be requested to take an English language proficiency and/or subject-level assessment. Click here to read more about the admissions process.


The American School of Rome is based in the Municipio XV district, and is a 20 to 30-minute drive from the city center. The school has public transport links by bus.
