International Schools Association (ISA)

The ISA is based in Geneva, with offices in India and the USA, and was established in Paris in 1951 as an international organisation for the development of co-operation among its member schools and with all those interested in promoting international understanding.

The ISA was instrumental in the development of the International Baccalaureate Organization and in creating a programme for middle schools, which later developed into the IBMYP. It publishes Internationalism in Schools – a Self-Study Guide, for schools and sponsor an annual ‘Youth Encounter’ for students from member and non-member schools. A biannual World Conference is organized around a theme dealing with international education and the association sponsors oral English examinations.
