Message from the Principal

Marie Vic Suarez

SISC Principal

We acknowledge that the COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented challenge for all of us, changing the way we live, work and learn. These challenging times require that we adapt to the seemingly ever-changing situations so our students can continue their education while staying safe and healthy at home. Southville International School and Colleges (SISC) will conduct classes at the start of the new academic year using the remote technologies we have available. Many SISC students have been already using these technologies during previous academic years. In addition, SISC’s faculty and staff are developing the skills and competencies needed to deliver hands-on training to students in an online world. We remain committed to the mission of excellence in education that our students and the community expect from SISC while keeping everyone safe and healthy.
