Supervised care before/after school

This purpose-built residential facility for students Grades 6 to 12 will provide a safe, supportive and productive environment that will bring together international students living in China (including Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau), South-East Asia and from around the world. The ISA Science City Boarding House provides families near and far with two residential options:

Full-time boarders: Residents attend seven days and nights a week during term time. This option is ideal for international students and those from more distant parts of China.

Weekly boarders: Residents attend at the school Monday to Friday. This provision enables those students from cities easily accessible to Guangzhou, the option of returning home each weekend. It will be particularly popular to families in Hong Kong, given the high-speed train service which connects these two great cities. Typically, students will arrive at school by 8.00am on Mondays and return home on Friday evening.

Extracurricular activities or clubs offered

We anticipate commencing with up to 40 different co-curricular activities at ISA Science City in our first school year. For us, co-curricular activities provide a wonderful opportunity for students to explore a range of areas of interest, beyond the classroom. Our co-curricular programme extends the core teaching
and learning provided by our school. As such, our co-curricular programme has four key pillars, which students may select activities from within:

- Academic Extension
- Language and Culture
- The Arts

Our co-curricular programme will be provided to all students at our school, with age appropriate activities overseen by our internal team, with external providers assisting in the provision of excellent activities. These activities will occur during lunchtime and/or after-school, Monday to Thursday each week.
