Our little school with a big vision is home to over 130 children and over 20 full-time staff that hail from all corners of the world. We are united by a mission of inspiring curious minds and nurturing understanding hearts in a multilingual, multicultural environment for a lifetime of global citizenship.
The International School of Charlottesville is a leader in foreign-language immersion for young children, offering programs in French and Spanish for children 2 years old up to 3rd grade. We are currently in the process of expanding up to 5th grade.
