ACS Doha Pathways

ACS Doha Pathways offers access to a wide range of educational experiences for students of all ages.

We work with a dynamic network of businesses, universities, cultural institutions and government ministries in Doha and beyond. These connections will help provide the knowledge, expertise and experience our students need to learn beyond the classroom and pursue their passions.

The pathways cover a range of subject areas, allowing students to tailor their educational experience to their interests and their chosen career path. These include entrepreneurship, communications, international relations, art & design and engineering.

ACS Doha has also partnered with Paragon One to deliver an Externships Programme. These programmes allow students to undertake remote internships, or ‘externships’ with these industry-leading companies, working on real projects.

Language Acquisition

At ACS Doha, all students are offered the choice to study French, Spanish or Arabic.

When students reach High School at ACS Doha, the Language Acquisition programme offers a variety of pathways:

  • The Diploma Programme (DP)
  • Language B Programme
  • High School Languages Programme

All of these programmes are connected to the students’ future academic or professional interests.
