The school was founded as an elementary school
in 1873 by a group of American missionaries led
by James Bassett. This was in the 26th year of
the reign of Nasereddin Shah Qajar, 22 years
after Amir Kabir founded the Dar ul-Funun school
in Tehran, and 33 years before the
Constitutional Revolution in Persia (as it was
known back then; later it became "Iran" during
the Reza Shah Era).
When Dr. Samuel Jordan arrived in Persia in
1898, he instituted change; subsequently, Alborz
became a 12-year elementary and secondary
school, with its share of college courses.
Thereafter, the institution came to be known as
the American College of Tehran.
Dr. Jordan remained president of Alborz for 42
years (1899–1940). During his tenure, Alborz
grew from an elementary school to a high school
In 1932, the school received a permanent charter
from the Board of Regents of the State
University of New York.
In 1940 and during World War II, by the order of
Shah Reza Pahlavi, Alborz was removed from
American management and placed under the
auspices of the Iranian Ministry of Education.
