Hello ISANA Octavia Families,

Welcome Back, ISANA Octavia Academy Lion Community!

Dear students, parents, and staff,
I am thrilled to welcome each and every one of you back to ISANA Octavia Academy for what promises to be an exciting and enriching year ahead! As the summer days gently give way, our Lion Community reunites with renewed energy and enthusiasm, ready to embark on another chapter of growth and learning together.
At ISANA Octavia Academy, we firmly believe that each individual possesses a unique brilliance, a light that deserves to shine brightly. We encourage every member of our Lion Community to embrace their strengths, passions, and talents, fostering an environment where each of us can confidently share our gifts and learn from one another.
We proudly call ourselves a PRIDE of lions – Powerful, Responsible, Inspiring, Determined, and Empathetic. These qualities are not just words; they are the pillars that define us and guide us in everything we do. Together, we roar with power, displaying strength in unity. We embrace responsibility, understanding that our actions shape our future. We inspire others through our words and deeds, uplifting our community. Our determination fuels our pursuit of excellence, propelling us towards our goals. And perhaps most importantly, we lead with empathy, understanding the feelings and perspectives of those around us.
I want to extend my gratitude to our incredible team of educators, support staff, parents, and students who make ISANA Octavia Academy a place of inspiration and growth. Together, we will continue to create an environment where everyone can shine their brightest and know that they truly belong.
Here’s to a remarkable year filled with laughter, discovery, and meaningful connections. Let’s make this year the best one yet, as we unite as a Lion Community to embrace the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.
With warmest regards,

Bridgett Henry

Coming Up at ISANA Octavia


“My daughter is biracial (half Jamaican, half Salvadorian), and from day one, ISANA has welcomed her with open arms, allowing her to proudly embrace and celebrate her rich and vibrant cultural heritage. Every staff member treats her like family, and whether she’s greeted by a “Good morning” or a “Buenos días,” she knows that she is loved and supported, and that she can always be her true, authentic self.”
Nastassja Tyrell
ISANA Parent
“Every student, every family, every educator, is a special member of the ISANA family, and every day, when I walk into my school, I get to be a part of a community, make a difference in the lives of my students and their families, and work among colleagues – friends – who support, respect, and value each other.”
Jill Parago
ISANA Teacher
"Our experience as an ISANA family has been absolutely wonderful! There’s an unparalleled sense of community and school pride here. Our eldest daughter attended ISANA Nascent and her two younger siblings are now there too! The teachers have been amazing, the yard and front office staff are always welcoming, and we love the small school feel!"
