ISA Divisions & Partners

WorldStrides ISA Custom Programs (CP)

ISA Internships & Service-Learning

ISA Internships & Service-Learning provides participants a unique experiential learning program abroad. Internship placements focus on high-quality, customized work experiences while offering career-building guidance before, during and after the program. Service-Learning placements are designed to meet the needs of the local community while developing skills relevant to the participant’s field of study through guided reflection.

ISA High School

ISA High School offers two- to four-week summer programs that focus on language acquisition and cultural immersion for students at various levels of proficiency. These academic programs provide high school students the opportunity to take classes at an international university and earn college credit. In addition, through Global Impact programs, high school students can earn college credit and service hours by making a difference in their host community.

ISA Gap Programs

ISA Gap Programs offer high school graduates the opportunity to study abroad before entering college. The programs do not have to encompass a full year, as students can choose from a variety of ISA summer or semester programs or a combination of both.

EuroScholars

EuroScholars is a unique, research-intensive study abroad program designed for talented and advanced undergraduate students. The program combines a study abroad experience with the opportunity to join a research team and participate in an ongoing investigation at an internationally renowned European research university.

Veritas Christian Study Abroad

Veritas Christian Study Abroad adds spiritual support and faith-based opportunities to existing ISA study abroad programs. Through the guidance and encouragement of on-site Mission Mentors, students are connected to local churches and ministries in order to uniquely immerse them into the host culture and increase personal growth. As students study and serve in their communities, they will develop a greater understanding and love for the people in their host city that will forever change their perspective of the world around them.
