The ISABC supports its member schools in their development of world-class educators by encouraging collaboration and networking opportunities, providing professional development, promoting best practice, and facilitating action research.

ISABC works to connect leaders across our member schools. We facilitate 14 Leadership groups, including Heads of ISABC Schools; Principals of Early Learning, Junior, Middle and Senior School; Marketing and Communications, Admissions, HR, Business, and Risk Managers; Network and Educational Technologist Leaders; Learning Resource, Athletics and Service Learning Coordinators. Collaboration groups connect Heads of English, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Languages as well as Librarians, Heads' Executive Assistants and University Counselors.

Individual ISABC Schools hold professional development sessions and lectures to which other schools and the general public are invited.

    ISABC Student Leadership Program 2018 - 2019

    The ISABC, in partnership with Future Design School, has developed a student leadership program that will empower students by developing leadership skills which will then be applied directly in their schools.  Over the course of the two-day residential leadership training at Keats Camp, students and teachers will work collaboratively to design a program for their school that seeks to respond to the question: ‘How might we create a more inclusive school community?’; they will then return to school to implement their learning. Throughout the process, students will learn key leadership skills such as active listening, self-awareness, human-centered design, empathy, reflection, giving and receiving good advice, developing and pitching ideas, and public speaking. Teachers will also receive hands-on professional development on how to apply design thinking tools and methods to enhance student learning and leadership.
