Our Direction

Our Vision

A world with exemplary school leaders who drive improvement in student learning and well-being.

Our Mission

To provide all school leaders with exemplary professional learning focused on the application of theory and research to leadership practices known to improve student achievement.


  • For school leaders, we offer leadership programs that are collaboratively contextualized around the world to ensure the highest level of impact on practice, while maintaining our standards and core program.
  • For organizations and local government, we offer consulting services with a diverse cadre of experts with strong academic backgrounds and demonstrated excellence as educational leaders.
  • For delegations of international teachers, school leaders and education professionals, we offer the opportunity to study a high performing educational school system by being immersed in the Canadian culture while in Toronto – a global city.
  • ISL collects and analyzes a wide array of participant data to inform program delivery and development. We have strong evidence of excellent learning experiences and, most importantly, evidence that the learning is directly applied to practice.
