EMASI is a group of international bilingual schools with American standard facilities that delivers Vietnamese national curriculum and the internationally esteemed Cambridge curriculum, adopting modern teaching methods from developed countries. 

EMASI Schools have eco-friendly campuses located in the hearts of the Van Phuc residential area, in Thu Duc District and the Nam Long residential area of District 7 in Ho Chi Minh City.

The EMASI pedagogy equips our students with the ability to become self-motivated learners.

Both Vietnamese and English are used in the schools. This reflects our clear goal that students will master the Vietnamese language and become as proficient in English as native speakers. Apart from the academic expectation, the schools strongly focus on art and physical education because health is the basic foundation of life, and art helps develop aesthetic taste, promote creativity and enrich life.

The schools are committed to providing the highest quality education to Vietnamese families and to promoting the above-said attributes and attitudes amongst our students, so that they are well prepared for the globalization trend without any barriers of language, culture, knowledge or skills.


EMASI mission is to provide an outstanding education delivered in Vietnamese and English that emphasizes Vietnamese values, academic and personal excellence and fosters global understanding, respect and independent learning.
