The Center for the Advancement and Study of International Education (CASIE) is a non-profit organization that promotes multi-language programs and international understanding in K-12 schools in the United States.
CASIE aims to strengthen the U.S. education system as it readies students for a more competitive global economy by equipping them with a broader world view and cross-cultural communication skills. CASIE recognizes the challenges facing the education system and promotes international education through several programs.
The Center was created in the fall of 1999 at Atlanta International School by a group of trustees and educators who realized the need for such a resource in the region. Based at Atlanta International School, CASIE offers a full range of workshops and consultancy for educators in a wide variety of fields relating to international and multi-language education.
