The American College of Norway is now in its 20th academic year. It was founded in 1990 by Dr. Steinar Opstad, a former Vice President of NHO, the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise.
In 1992, ACN began with 12 Norwegian and 12 American students coming together to study in a quaint farm mansion on the island of Jeløy in Moss, Østfold, Norway. Throughout the years the program has expanded to 70 students from Norway, the United States, and countries from all over the world. ACN is now located in the beautiful Convention Building (Konvensjonsgaarden), downtown Moss, near the public library, cafes, shopping and nightlife.
