APU American International School is an independent, coeducational university preparatory day school with two campuses and boarding facilities located in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam. Since its inception in 2004, APU has continuously participated in the economic development of Vietnam by offering high-quality education to K-12 learners.

Following the success of Ho Chi Minh City’s campus, we are pleased to have opened the APU American International School in Da Nang City in 2015, which provides the APU quality and brand in the Central region of Vietnam. Building on the success of APU, a long process lead to the creation of the first American-style university, located in the same Danang campus: the American University in Vietnam (AUV). Also, for the 2020-2021 school year, APU American International School has launched the Bilingual Program.

APU American International School offers a boarding program for students who either do not live in Viet Nam or students who want to participate in the boarding school experience. Our dormitory facilities are located in the safe and secure campus.
