Welcome to Aston International Academy
Aston International Academy was established in 1992 to help students master the English language and succeed in the global village. Aston International Academy, also known as AIA, has an excellent track record of helping our students achieve their goals, whether it be getting into an American college or university, landing their dream job, or improving themselves personally. Over the last 25+ years, we have maintained a welcoming, personal environment that is ideal for learning and living. With no more than 10 students in a class, our classrooms encourage intimacy, progress and confidence.
The goal of our classes is to help students develop their ability to speak and listen to English in real-life situations. AIA bases its classes on communicative activities that focus on everyday and academic language and aim to develop the core skills of speaking, listening, reading, and writing. AIA's language courses provide an excellent springboard for developing vital language skills by using activities that directly mirror what people do in the real world.
Our Sister School
Balboa School is located in San Diego, CA. It is a private school that serves K-12 students from all over the world. They have a small class size, and college preparatory courses.
AIA has many success stories that we are proud of! Our students have used the English they learned at AIA to get jobs and promotions, to become US citizens, and to become a part of the world-wide community of English language speakers. Additionally, hundreds of our students have gone on to study at US colleges and universities, including Austin Community College, University of Texas, Texas Tech, MIT, Purdue, University of New Mexico, University of Illinois, Boston Architecture School and University of Utah.
Aston International Academy is committed to providing intensive academic and non-academic English language education to speakers of other languages from professional, experienced instructors. Serving both international students and Austin residents, we aim to foster a community of learners with a focus on fluency and confidence in a comfortable, inclusive, family-like atmosphere.
