Founded in 1960, the Pan American School of Bahia (PASB) is cooperatively owned by parents and operates as a non-profit, non-denominational, college-preparatory institution for American, International and Brazilian students. We offer an international education to children age 2-18. Our English-language, International-style education strives to prepare students to face challenges as confident, principled global citizens. Our outstanding American and Brazilian programs, offered in a safe and nurturing environment, empower students to reach their fullest potential.
We also offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP) which is a demanding pre-university course of study that leads to examinations. It is designed for highly motivated secondary school students in year 11 and 12. The IB DP is a comprehensive two-year international curriculum that allows students to fulfill the requirements of their national or state education systems.
