The International Sports Academy (ISA) is designed for dedicated student-athletes entering grades 7-12 or Post-Graduates. Our full-time academy combines year-round sport and performance training with an elite academic curriculum. We prepare student-athletes for higher education through a focus on critical and creative thinking, public speaking, and global awareness.

The ISA program is ideal for student-athletes who want to compete at the next level and be challenged both athletically and academically.

ISA has partnered with elite academic institution Andrews Osborne Academy (AOA) to provide student-athletes with a challenging academic curriculum.  AOA’s standout academic programs, state-of-the-art facilities, and a robust curriculum provide an educational experience that is unrivaled. Our teachers are talented, creative, forward-thinking and inspirational professionals who lead each student’s personal learning journey with great attention to the individual student.

We achieve Academic Excellence by offering classrooms rich with cross-content learning experiences, active learning, collaboration, and project-based assignments.

Although we encourage our students to use Critical Thinking to make reasoned judgments that are logical and well thought out, Creative Thinking is incorporated into all classrooms to guide students beyond content mastery and stimulate discovery and innovation. Our classroom lessons, across all levels, promote perspective-taking and are designed to foster fluent, flexible and original thinking.

An essential component of leadership and academic excellence, Public Speaking occupies an important place in our curriculum and is a focus in Lower, Middle and Upper School classes.

Students from 22 countries, 8 states and 2 territories create a unique opportunity for developing Global Awareness right on our campus. AOA’s vibrant and diverse student community of passionate learners bring each other a wealth of cultural perspective and understanding that allows each student to gain a unique view of the world around them and graduate as global citizens.

Academic Programs Include:

  • 7th-12th grade college preparatory curriculum
  • AP Courses
  • STEM
  • SAT/ACT Prep courses
  • ESL (English as a Second Language) and TOEFL test prep
  • Option for online college course

All International Sports Academy boarding students live on campus at Andrews Osborne Academy.

Located in beautiful Willoughby, OH (20 miles east of Cleveland), the natural forested campus sits on 300 beautiful acres of land.  We believe that the boarding community is a student’s home away from home.  The boarding houses found here are a short walk from the student union, athletic facilities, the library, the dining hall, and all academic buildings.

Have big dreams and goals for the future?  Surround yourself with other students who also dream big and caring adults who want to help you make it happen. At ISA, we provide you with more opportunity to LEARN, LEAD, and GROW through living with your fellow classmates.
