Extended Curriculum

Why Are Extended Curriculum Activities (ECAs) Important at ISP?

The Extended Curriculum Activities (ECAs) offered by the International School of Paris form a big part of students’ lives, and a great majority of students are enrolled in at least one activity. While the ECAs are not part of the formal curriculum, they strongly support the philosophy and learning style of the International Baccalaureate programmes.

Participation in these activities develops students in all areas of the learner profile, gives them opportunities to try new disciplines and perhaps even find their passion(s) in life. In addition to developing interests and skills, the ECAs enhance school spirit by giving students and staff opportunities to interact across grade boundaries and to make new connections in the community.

Teacher-Led ECAs

Many of our ECAs are led by ISP teachers with skills or knowledge they would like to share with students. Teachers sometimes also create activities based on students' requests.
