The leading global guide to international schools

Welcome to, where you will find details of more than 4,200 international schools across the world. Our aim is to help you choose the right international school for your child, and you will find a wealth of useful information within these pages.

This website is partnered with our annual guidebook, John Catt's Guide to International Schools. Search results include basic details of international schools – including fees, pupil numbers, languages of instruction and curriculum – and full profiles of leading schools. You can search for international day and boarding schools, boys' schools, girls' schools, prep schools, senior schools and sixth forms; and also search by country and curriculum.

You can also read latest news and features from the international education sector and visit our new country profiles section to read about national education systems.

The number of international schools continues to grow apace. We select the international schools that appear on this site, and will continue to add reputable schools that meet our requirements. To be verified as an 'international school' requires at least one of the following:

a) offering a curriculum not of the school's host nation.

b) membership of, or accreditation by, a premier international school association, such as the Council of International Schools (CIS)Council of British International Schools (COBIS), ECIS, EARCOS, ISA, NEASC.

c) accepting international students (i.e. students from foreign countries).
