Important Announcement about the online delivery of the International School Leadership Certificate Program

The online delivery of our signature ISL program is currently under review and redesign. We anticipate the new delivery model to be in place by January 2024.

In anticipation of significant changes in the model, we are advising past participants of what might be the final opportunity to complete the online certificate program. Further, we will not be accepting new participants until the release of the new delivery model. 

ISL continues to offer the program onsite and online under contract. Please contact for further information.
