College & University
ISK provides a challenging academic program that will provide students the skills and tools necessary to achieve future success in universities around the world.
We strive to provide our students with an education that will encourage them to become not only independent and responsible adults, but also life-long learners. Students are also immersed in a rich program of arts and athletics designed to provide students with a well-rounded high school experience.
The high school program requires students to earn a minimum of 23 credit hours before graduating. ISK graduates will have the opportunity to apply for a Bachelor's Degree Program at a recognized institution of higher learning worldwide. Our education placement partners will help our graduates with their applications for placement at the institution of their choice.

The core courses of the high school curriculum include English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies. Students may choose from a variety of elective courses to suit their needs. Our High School Program includes instruction in the following core courses and electives:
At the end of each semester, one half (.5) credit is given for the successful completion of each course. All courses continue from semester 1 to semester 2 and upon successful completion these will be given one (1.0) credit for the year. To move from one grade in the high school to the next, a student must earn a minimum number of credits.
Student performance levels are assessed and graded in a variety of ways including through projects, class work, presentations, tests, quizzes, assignments and various other methods, which will all be graded and factored into their Grade Point Averages (GPAs). The various instructional methods employed by teachers are designed to progressively evaluate the students’ academic development and encourage learning and understanding through critical thinking and application of learned knowledge rather than rote learning.
ISK has adopted the College Board College and Career Readiness Pathway assessments. The series of assessment consist of PSAT 8/9 (8th to 9th grade), PSAT/NMSQT (10th to 11th grade) and SAT (11th to 12th grade). These integrated assessments measure a student’s college and career readiness from the eighth through 12th grades.
