What sets ISP apart from other camps?
Our ESL and our tours…

Our ESL teachers are all credentialed and our curricula incorporate common core techniques, effective writing styles, and essential communication tools. Our students don’t use boring workbooks or worksheets. Instead, they are engaged in active, creative, hands-on learning both in and out of the classroom representing the American school curricula of whole language learning.

Our Northern California camp provides unique experiences of private tours of Google and Facebook and a lecture from a previous admission counselors at Stanford University on how to gain entrance into an American university.

Southern California camps have the action-packed, fast paced adventure of amusement parks, beaches, and famous university tours.
