A Good Idea for Our Children

There are different kinds of people! There are some who DO: they create and produce, and there are others who only discuss and analyze what the first group is doing.  A good example of people who DO; people with a mission and a profound interest in investing the future is all the good people at Arcus, Co.  In 2003 they built a school in Veliko Turnovo - the American College Arcus.

Currently, over two hundred students from all over Bulgaria are studying at the American College Arcus.  In only 7 short years the school has proven itself to be a serious educational center, providing a quality education - in English.  During this time many noteworthy achievements have been made in the teaching process, in extracurricular activities and in student life in general.  The school received a license from the Bulgarian Ministry of Education and Science, followed by accreditation by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), and European and American accrediting bodies (CIS, ECIS and NEASC).  The school's modern equipment and facilities rival that of most world universities.  Our graduates have gone on to continue their educations in prestigious colleges and universities in Bulgaria, Europe and the USA.

American College Arcus is funded in three ways: by state funding, by school fees and by donations.  Since the inception of the school its primary donor has been Arcus Co., administered by the Board of Trustees.

Trustees, administrators, teachers and the entire staff are driven by the desire to continue to improve the college so that it remains a prestigious institution with rich traditions that would make all parents proud to have their child attend.  A school to make everyone proud.

To make this happen, we need your financial and material support.  Your donations give us opportunities to grow and to invest in the following areas:

  • Upgrading and improving existing infrastructure
  • Professional development of teaching staff
  • Dormitory maintenance and improvement
  • Extension of sports facilities and activities
  • Purchase of a school bus
  • Establishment of a scholarship fund  

I would like to thank you in advance for your interest and your contributions.  We truly appreciate your willingness to support us as we face the challenges of the future.  I would also like to personally assure you that all donations will be used according to your expectations:  appropriately, transparently and ethically.

If you would like to know how you can support us, please contact me directly.

Faithfully yours,

Peter Ivanov

Director, American College Arcus
