Home > About Us

International School for Science and Culture (ISSAC) is on a mission to cultivate global citizens empowered to build a peaceful society through the pursuit of an innovative curriculum designed to meet modern challenges.

We are a tuition-free charter school, approved in March 2019 by the Orange County Department of Education, for transitional kindergarten (TK) through 8th grade. While ISSAC is located in the Newport Beach/Costa Mesa area, we welcome and are authorized to enroll all Orange County, California residents.

We are founded on the dedication and tenacity of a visionary founder -- with the passionate support of parents, educators, academics, technologists and leaders of professions -- who believe an exceptional education must honor the learners' individuality, rather than move them in lockstep fashion through the academics, and must prepare them for global leadership.

Come help us build!
