Dear Parents,

This year marks the 15th Anniversary of The ISF Academy.  The school has grown from just  54 students in August 2003 to more than 1,800 this year. Our exponential growth is due in no small part to the strong support that we receive from our students, our parents, and our alumni who experienced our educational programs and shared their experiences. As you explore the different schooling options for your child, we invite you to visit our campus on one of our Open Days to talk to them. The smiling faces and happy voices of our students will be one of the first things you hear. As you talk to them, you will learn more about their life in school, the subjects they study, and the activities they do. You will gradually come to the realization that our students enjoy coming to school and love learning.

This eager pursuit of knowledge is what we aim to instill in every student that crosses our threshold. The motto of our founding Chairman and Nobel Prize Laureate for Physics, Professor Charles Kao, “Learning! Learning! Learning!” is central to our school’s identity. Our inquiry-based pedagogy allows us to prepare our students for the school of life.

Our students are known for their strong inter-personal skills and their effective communication skills in English and Chinese (Putonghua). In their final two years, our students study the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB Diploma) with its broad and balanced curriculum. In addition to its academic rigor, our students have the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills to community service, gaining valuable experience outside the academic world. In our short history, we are proud of our graduates who have received offers from leading universities all around the world.

We are a through-train K-12 school that seeks diversity in our student body – racial, ethnic, religious, and above all socioeconomic.

To find out more about the application process and prerequisites, please refer to our Admissions Policy and Procedure. We welcome inquiries from you and invite you to contact us at +852 2202 2028 or We look forward to meeting you on campus.

Yours sincerely,

Jo-Ann Seow

Dean of Admissions
