School Overview

Originally established as a French Protestant College by Reverend Calvin Amaron in 1885, the American International College (AIC) today is a private, co-educational liberal-arts college. AIC is located in the Mason Square neighborhood in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Rev. Calvin E. Amaron, the founder of AIC, established the college in an effort to provide higher education opportunities to the French Protestant minority living in the Massachusetts area. In 1892, the school opened its doors to other minority groups, including women and immigrants from Europe and Canada. Today the college is a multi-cultural institution of higher learning that continues to emphasize acceptance, diversity and commitment to the community.
