Our Mission and Educational Philosophy

At International Academy of San Antonio, we are reimagining and transforming global learning. 

As part of the Common Ground Collaborative (CGC), a global network of international schools, IASA’s academic program mimics real-world experiences by encouraging students to become architects of their own learning. Our curriculum focuses on six “human commonalities” that define modern life: imagination and creativity, personal identity, purpose and balance, patterns and principles, sustainability and systems, and literacy (personal communication and media).

Our Three Imperatives

Find Joy—This is the purpose of life—and a choice you can make every day
