Welcome to the TASIS Diamond Anniversary!
When Mrs. Fleming founded TASIS in 1956, the world was a very different place. This was before space travel and the Beatles, and although it was the height of the Cold War, the construction of the Berlin Wall was still five years away. Telephones were clunky (remember those rotary dials?), computers were massive but limited in what they could do, and the idea of communicating instantly with people anywhere in the world was only true in science fiction novels.
And yet, Mrs. Fleming’s dream of bringing people of all nations and cultures together to live and learn took root in those times.
This year, we celebrate 60 years of Mrs. Fleming’s vision, and the ever-growing community of people around the world who have been inspired by their time at TASIS.
Events begin in January and continue through Founder’s Day 2016. We hope you will join us for our Diamond Anniversary Celebration on the weekend of August 19-20, which will include alumni performances, a Serata Ticinese catered by Angelo Piattini & friends, and a gala evening featuring a special performance of MCF: What a Life!
We hope you enjoy browsing this special website. Check back often, as we will be adding alumni profiles and images from various events as the year continues.
We hope to welcome you home in 2016!
