Welcome to Tarsus American College.  TAC was founded in 1888 by American educators and is now governed by the Health and Education Foundation (SEV) a Turkish non-profit foundation.   Students enter the school through a nationally-administered, private schools’ entrance exam.   We are a selective co-educational high school and are widely recognized as one of the best in the Mediterranean region.    TAC offers both the Turkish national curriculum and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program.    The national curriculum is enriched with electives and an immersive English preparatory program for all students prior to starting the 9th grade.    The school is accredited by the Turkish Ministry of Education and the Council of International Schools (CIS).
 
Tarsus stands at the crossroads of world history, a small city situated just 10 miles inland from the shores of the Mediterranean amidst citrus groves with a mountainous backdrop.  Historic sites such as Cleopatra’s Gate and St. Paul’s Church are within just a few minutes walk from TAC.   The subtropical climate allows for near year-round access to outdoor activities and the accessibility of two larger cities, Mersin and Adana, provide for additional educational and recreational opportunities.   Istanbul is a one-hour flight from Adana, providing inexpensive and easy access to cities in Europe and the Middle East.
 
We would love you to consider both joining the TAC family and having the wonderful experience of living in the beautiful coastal region of Cukurova, Turkey.
