Program Overview

The exclusive ISSOS international summer school program offers high school students the unique opportunity to combine learning, creative enrichment and action-packed adventure in one of our exclusive summer school locations - St Andrews, Cambridge or Yale Universities.

ISSOS Summer School Programs

All students will select one academic summer program and one elective summer course which they will follow throughout the three week summer school.

At ISSOS, we are proud to provide high quality academic programs designed to cater specifically for the needs of international students. Classes meet daily for three hours and unlike other summer schools we offer limited places in order to guarantee small class sizes and individual attention.

While mornings are spent studying, afternoons at ISSOS are reserved for exciting electives. Each student is able to combine their academic summer program with one of our unique in-depth elective courses. Timetabled four afternoons per week, these fun-filled and action-packed courses will enable students to discover and experience exciting subjects while gaining new skills and expertise.


ISSOS offers its students a summer school adventure like no other. In addition to our exceptional academic programs and exciting afternoon electives each of our students will also benefit from a broad ranging and all-inclusive summer school activities program. Over three weeks we will immerse our students in the UK and USA's rich and unique culture and introduce them to some of its best-loved landmarks, cities and breath-taking natural wonders.

Whether you want to discover Braveheart country, punt down the River Cam or experience life at an Ivy League University, our fun-filled and action-packed activities program has been designed to leave no one behind. With an exhilarating selection of outdoor activities, day trips and evening entertainments as well as the exclusive Highland Adventure the ISSOS summer school guarantees the summer of a life-time not to be missed.
