Welcome to the Home Of The Panthers!

EARJ takes pride in inspiring young people to find their unique paths, to become global citizens and lifelong learners by challenging them to develop their potential and realize their dreams.

Ours is a community of over 30 nationalities, where teachers, parents and students work together to provide a world-class American international educational experience through high quality academics and an exceptional extracurricular activities and sports program.

EARJ is an accredited US college preparatory English-medium international school. We are unique in Rio de Janeiro as the only school to offer three diplomas: the IB Diploma, a US High School Diploma, and the Brazilian Ensinio Médio. These options provide our students with a range of credentials that are recognized in the US and globally.

For over 80 years, EARJ has been proud to offer an education that builds character and shape fulfilled individuals and engaged global citizens. Our students are free to explore and discover their passions by creating or affiliating to clubs, Honor Societies and extracurricular activities, taking ownership of their projects and taking an active role in the direction of their education.

At EARJ we cherish excellence, community engagement, opportunities and open dialogue.
