In 1978, the French Mission Laïque founded an educational establishment in Valbonne that was later to become the Centre International de Valbonne (CIV). As of 1978/9, an international section was opened within the school to prepare students for the International Baccalaureate, and in 1982 further international sections were added dedicated to the French Option Internationale du Baccalauréat (OIB). When the school became the responsibility of the Education Ministry in 1983, ASEICA was created to take over the employment of the international teaching staff who had previously been under the responsibility of the Mission Laïque.
Since then, teachers prepare students for the International Option of the Baccalaureate - American version, an education and a diploma recognized worldwide by prestigious universities.
Since 1983, ASEICA never ceased to develop. The association continues to employs a team of highly qualified teachers as well as an administrative team. After many years of experience at the CIV, teaching college and lycée level children, ASEICA concluded an agreement with a local primary school, Sartoux, to run a joint primary program. Today some 200 pupils benefit from a fully bilingual primary education in two schools in Valbonne and Mougins.
In 2004, the Inspection Académique of Nice embarked on an ambitious plan to develop international education in the area, and Anglophone sections were opened in two further colleges, Niki de St Phalle and Eganaude. Later in 2011 an international section was created at College César. ASEICA was asked to assume the provision of teaching in these establishments, continuing the educational established within the CIV. The section is run as a single section across all these schools. In total there are almost 1700 students in the section in 2017.
In 2005, at the request of the Education Nationale, a new Association, ISSA, took over the management of the International Baccalaureate program thereby ending years of close collaboration in this area. ISSA filed for bankruptcy after a short-lived period.
In 2005, ASEICA was delighted to receive its first Accreditation from the Rectorat de Nice, and is proud of this confirmation of its ongoing partnership with the Education Nationale. This accreditation was renewed in 2011 and in 2016.
ASEICA is an association recognized of general interest since 2016.
