The Independent Schools Association of the Central States is an association of independent schools located in a 15-state region in the Midwest. Founded in 1908, ISACS serves both as a service organization for its member schools and as a network for the promotion of quality in independent schools.

Member schools are required to demonstrate their commitment to quality education by participating in a seven-year-cycle accreditation process, comprising an intensive self-study report and a school visit by a qualified evaluation team.
