Located in Monte Carlo, Monaco, the American College of Monaco, offering a four year degree program, was reportedly established by the Principality at the request of Princess Grace. It existed in the 1960s and 1970s, and held classes in the Hotel Hermitage behind the Hotel de Paris, and the famous Monte Carlo Casino during its first academic year. After that, the school relocated to the Hotel Splendid, on the border of Beausoleil, France. Prince Rainier II was the Chancellor of the School, and the famous oceanographer, Jacques Yves Cousteau, was a member of its Board of Academic Overseers.
