Welcome to our Development Office
The International School of Arizona’s Development Office seeks additional funding for our full-immersion bilingual education school for many reasons:
Your support will keep ISA positioned to meet the challenges of educating next-generation global leaders, as well as take advantage of the opportunities. Long-term support, as volunteers and donors, is crucial to our future success.
Throughout this page and the Support ISA page, you will find information on ways to support ISA. We welcome your interest, questions, comments, and assistance. Whether you are a parent or grandparent wanting to give your child the gift of a second language, a business owner who recognizes the importance of global citizenship, or simply an admirer of ISA’s mission, we hope you’ll support our school’s international scholarship.
Thank you for your generosity and for investing in this unique and excellent educational institution.
The International School of Arizona (ISA) has experienced a doubling of enrollment in five years, and continues to grow despite a tough economic climate in Arizona. ISA will be out of extra space in two years. The campus is landlocked, and the building footprint does not allow additions. A new campus will better meet the language-immersion educational needs of our most precious resource – our children.
A Building Committee was formed in 2007, and architects at The Orcutt/Winslow Partnership reviewed ISA’s facilities related options and developed a Planning Schedule. Timing of the implementation of each option was also a critical issue reviewed in the study. ISA is now in the ‘Land Acquisition’ phase of development, after studying the feasibility of sites and preparing specifications for the future campus (build or lease). ISA’s current lease extends until 2014. There are currently limited administrative and meeting spaces, and no outdoor athletic facilities beyond a small playground.
With a proposed doubling of space from the present 14,183 sq. ft., to the projected 28,000 sq. ft., ISA’s strategic plan envisions, as funds become available, a middle school and high school on the same campus. The current facility can accommodate 250 students, with the need for pre-K through 5th at the New Campus to house 360 students. Both the middle school and high school at the new location are envisioned to be 28,000 sq. ft. facilities, for a total of 84,000 sq. ft. desired, and an eventual capacity of over 800 students.
Like other donations to ISA, New Campus contributions are tax deductible, and will make a great difference in making our dream of a larger, more permanent location come true. There are many ways to contribute to this fund:
The International School of Arizona provides a uniquely engaged learning experience that ensures students have the empathy, intellectual ingenuity, and courage to lead in an ever-changing 21st century world.
Students with a dual language background develop resourcefulness that crosses boundaries and disciplines. The reasons for the planned New Campus are numerous. Among the most compelling, however, is that ISA is the only Spanish/French full language-immersion pre-K through 5th Grade school in the Valley. We are giving children what it will take to be citizens of the world. We’re global…and we’re growing.
You have the power to make a lasting impact on the International School of Arizona and our students through a planned gift. People help shape the global impact of future ISA students when they include the International School of Arizona in their estate plans.

Even those without a will can consider naming ISA as a beneficiary in their insurance policy or a retirement account.
