At ISA, we open the door to unparalleled education for students of color, opportunities many didn't know existed. For racial communities currently underrepresented in independent schools, we provide a pathway to success through application assistance and ongoing support programs.
Our ISA students and their parents are family. We are by your side from your first contact with us until long after your student graduates. Our goal is to find the school that is right for your student. We aim to demystify the complex admissions process and guide your family through application submission, the interview, entrance testing, and tuition assistance application. Once your student is accepted, we will continue to provide robust support programs throughout their educational journey. We'll open the door, your student will make their mark.
