Looking for a unique summer activity for your children?
Transport them a world away with our new Language Summer Camp.

It’s a new partnership with the Hamilton Lugar School of Global & International Studies, an exclusive opportunity to learn and experience Arabic and Mandarin language and culture through lessons and hands-on activities. A Portuguese component led by ISI staff also will be offered.



With their lead gift to the campaign, the family of 
Stanley and Allison Chen are investing in the
construction of a new ISI Lower School building.

The creation of the Chen Family Lower School Building 
is the centerpiece of our effort to build a unified ISI campus.
