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.
