Assumption College English Program

Assumption College English Program (ACEP) is the 17th school administered by the Saint Gabriel’s Foundation of Thailand and was officially opened on May 25, 2012. It is located approximately 30 kilometres south-west of Bangkok’s city centre, on Rama II Road. ACEP’s modern, spacious, and environmentally friendly design makes an inspiring place for our students to learn and develop not only academically, but also socially and morally. The campus allows opportunities for students to develop a range of academic, sporting, musical and other extracurricular interests. Our goal is to develop ACEP students into knowledgeable, moral, and polite citizens of the world. ACEP educates both female and male students from Year 1 to Year 12.

They study a range of academic and extracurricular subjects with qualified, dedicated, and passionate Thai and foreign teachers, using the latest technology, in state-of-the-art classrooms and facilities. We currently recruit over 50 fully qualified foreign teachers from a variety of nations to ensure that students are exposed to different accents and cultures.

We are very proud of our academic and sport programs as well as our beautiful campus with state-of-the-art facilities. Our students’ university entrance results are proof that ‘learning the ACEP way’ prepares them well for their further studies and careers.

First part: “A.M.” is abbreviated from Latin “Ave Maria,” meaning hail to Mary. The snow-white lilies are symbols representing purity.

Second part: “The ship” symbolizes the boat of life that fights stormy winds, steamy sun and rainy seas in order to reach the shore. It conveys that life is not easy but hard work always pays.

Third part: “The star over the boat fighting stormy winds, steamy sun and rainy seas” symbolizes “Spiritual Hope”, meaning “the light of Dharma and Intelligence”.

Fourth part: “DtS” comes from the French phrase, “Dieu Seul,” which means “God Alone.” The Cross is the symbol of love and sacrifice
