Welcome to EARJ - Creating a World of Opportunities

The American School of Rio de Janeiro (EARJ), one of South America’s finest schools, offers innovative programming and three diploma choices to support our students as they develop their full potential by mastering knowledge and skills and developing the character and self-confidence to be successful in our highly globalized marketplace.

Our excellent academic, sports and extra curricular activities offer every individual student the opportunity to find and further define areas of personal interest. Lifelong friendships are established by students from over forty countries as they interact, exchange and dialogue on ideas and concepts. The EARJ mission is to prepare students to be active and contributing members of a community. Enjoy the website! I am certain you will be impressed.
