Dear Awty Community,

Welcome to the first issue of ACCENT for the 2020-2021 school year. Before you all head out for the holiday break, here’s a look back at what you may have missed during Fall 2020. Even through the craziness of 2020, we have worked to keep the school open and operating for our students, reimagined events to bring our community together virtually, and watched our students shine brightly through it all.

Inside this issue, we feature the 2019-2020 Annual Report. The school extends a BIG thank you to everyone who contributed to a successful 2019-2020 school year, and who continue to support the school each and every year. We've also included news around campus, success stories among both the faculty and the student body, and brief bios on our new full-time employees.

We wish you all a safe, restful, and healthy holiday break. With the risk of sounding too redundant, we hope our families will be mindful of our protocols whether you are staying close to home or traveling over the break. We want to see all of our students safe and healthy when classes resume on January 4, 2021.

Here’s to a great break and an even better 2021!

With warmest regards,

Lisa A.H. Darling
Head of School

Pierre Puget
Deputy Head of School & Proviseur


The button below will take you to Awty's 2019-2020 Annual Report. Inside the report, you will find comprehensive donor lists for donations made to the school between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020. We gratefully acknowledge the many board members, parents, grandparents, alumni, alumni parents, faculty, staff, corporate partners, foundations, and friends who generously contributed their time, talent, and treasure to The Awty International School.


Even during times of social distancing, face masks, and cohorts, our students, faculty, and staff have remained resilient. Many of them even stood out from the crowd this fall! These members of the Awty Community deserve a standing ovation and a round of applause. >>READ MORE


While 2020 has been a year unlike any other and has had its fair share of challenges for everyone, we have strived to keep some sense of normalcy for our students—both those who are on campus and those at home. We've done so by maintaining or reimagining many of the Awty traditions. Let's take a look back at some of the big moments from the fall semester. >>READ MORE


Here's a quick glance at our new full-time faculty, staff members, and administrators who have been hired since the start of the 2020-2021 school year. Welcome to the Awty family! >>READ MORE
