Custom Programs

ISA High School Custom Programs are designed to meet the needs of the organizing teacher and their students, allowing them the flexibility to choose dates and destinations not offered through ISA-HS's general programs. In collaboration with ISA-HS's college division, International Studies Abroad (ISA), ISA-HS Custom Programs help teachers to create a unique experience for their students in over 29 different countries.


Custom Program Options

In collaboration with the ISA staff, faculty organizers may select from a variety of options when designing their custom program.

  • Choose from several countries in Latin America, Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia; or choose a multi-city tour
  • Determine the duration and dates of the program
  • Provide faculty, or use faculty provided by ISA
  • Reserve the program exclusively for their students, or allow students from other high schools to participate
  • Select specific excursions, or the excursions taken during ISA-HS's general programs
  • Select the appropriate accommodations (homestay, residence hall, and/or hotels.)
  • Offer specific courses designed by the faculty, or select from courses offered by the host institution
  • Determine the amount and type of credits issued
