Welcome to ISCA
Every year, the Independent Schools Cultural Alliance, ISCA, welcomes select school groups from all over the globe to the United Kingdom for our programmes. During their time with us, each student will learn about British history and culture by visiting the very best sights. We have chosen these sights with Middle Schoolers in mind: they are immersive experiences which capitalise on a Middle Schooler’s natural sense of curiosity.
The ISCA experience is just as much about building global connections, embracing global cultures, and becoming global citizens. Our campus environment is intentionally designed to encourage students to learn about the cultures of their contemporaries by forming lasting friendships.
Middle school students have an amazing sense of curiosity and wonder, an openness to learn about the world, others, and themselves and the ISCA experience empowers them to do just that.
ISCA offers three programmes. The three-week flagship summer travel programme for middle school students, customised trips for individual schools and our new ISCA Scotland Hogmanay programme. With 38 years experience in providing unique and exhilarating programmes ISCA has built up an enviable reputation for excellence, of which we are justly proud.
