Everyone Learning Everywhere

The ISC MISSION is: Everyone Learning Everywhere.

And what does that mean?

That we are an internationally minded community of students, parents, staff and alumni engaged in continuous learning.

At ISC, learning is a visible process that leads to:

Conceptual understanding: we build capacity for conceptual understanding because we believe that experts in any professional field should think about the great ideas of their profession and the relationships between them.

Competencies: We build capacity for competency learning because we believe that experts in a professional field should be masters of the skills required by the profession they have chosen.

Character: We create capacity for character learning to develop a strong and positive moral identity, because we are committed to developing experts in “human being”.

By including all contexts and spaces as unique learning opportunities, we contribute to global educational excellence.
