The ISABC supports its member schools in their development of world-class educators by encouraging collaboration and networking opportunities, providing professional development, promoting best practice, and facilitating action research.

ISABC works to connect leaders across our member schools. We facilitate 14 Leadership groups, including Heads of ISABC Schools; Principals of Early Learning, Junior, Middle and Senior School; Marketing and Communications, Admissions, HR, Business, and Risk Managers; Network and Educational Technologist Leaders; Learning Resource, Athletics and Service Learning Coordinators. Collaboration groups connect Heads of English, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Languages as well as Librarians, Heads' Executive Assistants and University Counselors.

Individual ISABC Schools hold professional development sessions and lectures to which other schools and the general public are invited.
