Because we believe in the potential of every ISAer, we have designed a system of education that is centered on mastery. And it has proven itself to be effective, year in and year out.
Our focus is arming learners with the essential tools and habits that lead to mastery. As difficulty increases for every year level moved up, so does the ISAer’s ability to learn and grasp critical topics to keep moving ahead.
With our robust system of assessments, review, and above-standard grading schemes, learners move a step closer to mastery, quite literally, everyday.
To achieve a richer and more seamless learning experience, we have integrated what were once extra-curricular programs that merely supplemented the main syllabus, directly into the curriculum of every ISAer.
The Scholastic reading program, our progressive music program, our individualized math program, our classic books program (8 children’s classics, such as Charlotte’s Web, The Prince and the Pauper, in Grades 4 to 6; 16 timeless novels, such as To Kill a Mockingbird, Les Miserables, as required readings for Junior High School), these are but a few of the initiatives that support every ISAer’s learning journey.
The ISA method of instruction trains learners to be able to absorb topics and solve complex problems before, during, and after formal classes, with or without their facilitators.
Our learner-centered approach believes in the ISAer’s ability to learn on their own and in the facilitator’s role to provide guidance. This way, classroom sessions are not lectures, but active discussions between facilitator and learner, and amongst the learners themselves.
The ISA learning system works on an everyday level. We believe in the little daily efforts that ultimately lead to great leaps forward.
Eventually, excellence in every endeavor becomes a routine for every single ISAer.
Our preschool learning program is designed to nurture young ISAers during their years of greatest growth and development.
Our elementary program focuses on shaping our learners’ lasting ideas about themselves, their country, and the world.
Our junior high program is set on guiding ISAers along the rough road of hard work and purpose.
Not only are ISAers prepared to gain acceptance at the country’s top universities, they are also trained to face the “real-world” challenges that come after graduation.
Through our dedicated and competent mentors and learning materials adopted from Beijing’s top universities, our Chinese Curriculum aims to place the ISAers at par with the world’s top schools that espouse the Chinese as a Second Language approach.
Aside from our regular curriculum, we offer reinforcement classes, the ISAMath classes, summer workshops, and other special courses for ISAers and learners not enrolled in ISA.
