This school history was compiled by Head of School, Don Fournier, on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the school. It is shared here in celebration of our legacy as Ecuador’s American International School and in memory of Mr. Fournier.
Academia Cotopaxi’s mission drives our school – it is the compass that guides us ever forward to the future. Like Ecuador’s history, we are a school in motion, blending familiar traditions with new ideas, adapting to a fast-paced, changing world.
The school sits on 4 hectares of property and is strategically located to serve the full metropolitan area of Quito including the surrounding Tumbaco and Los Chillos valleys.

Ecuador is located on the northwestern coast of South America, straddling latitude 0° at the “Middle of the World”. The country holds a dazzling array of landscapes and places to explore.
We have procedures for every eventuality and we conduct (and report on) emergency drills regularly. If you have a question about our emergency procedures, please speak to your child’s teacher and/or request a meeting with the Principal of your child’s division.
