About ISASA

The Independent Schools Association of Southern Africa is the largest and oldest membership organisation for private schools in the region. ISASA serves over 850 member schools across a broad range of socio-economic and cultural communities. Our member schools educate more than 200 000 pupils.

Role of ISASA

ISASA is a non-profit organisation that provides its members with services to protect their interests, promote best practice and support quality education.


Any independent school in Southern Africa may apply for ISASA membership, provided it meets the association’s quality requirements. Each member school pays an annual subscription fee. Membership of ISASA is voluntary: ISASA does not own or manage any schools and is not a governing body for private schools.
