Foreign Service families, who move to a different country and culture every few years, face unique
educational challenges. Whether it is providing undergraduate education for children at post or in a boarding
school, dealing with special needs kids, conducting a college search or maintaining professional skills or
attaining new ones for an FS employee or spouse, educational decision-making for FS families is neither easy
nor straightforward. To help them navigate, AFSA provides information and resources on options at every
FSJ Education Supplement
Every June and December, the Foreign Service Journal contains a 30-page supplement with a feature
article on an educational issue that affects FS families and information on schools that cater to families
based overseas, including a "Schools-at-a-Glance" chart that pulls the data and contact
information together school-by-school.
This chart, broken down by type of school, is updated with each new edition of the Schools Supplement. The purpose of the chart is to assist members and their children in evaluating different boarding schools. Please note that this chart is not a complete guide to boarding schools, but rather a starting point for your research.
You can navigate by school category using the navigation links below, or for a complete listing click here. (Updated in December 2012.)
