Welcome to VISa, Vientiane International School’s Co Curricular Activities program. VISa offers an opportunity for students to pursue and explore areas of interest in a safe, secure environment. The VISa program is designed to be an extension to the school’s main IB curriculum and strives to provide a broad range of activities that enhance the development of the whole child through active lifestyle choices, social interaction, leadership, and community involvement.
VISa programs include sports, arts, academics, interest clubs, and an extensive variety of community-focused groups. Please access the CCP Schedule tab to view our current offerings.
VIS has an exchange program with other international schools in the Vientiane area and is a founding member of the Mekong River International Schools Association (MRISA), an organization of international schools within the region including:
- International School of Phnom Penh, Cambodia
- Northbridge International School, Cambodia
- International School Eastern Seaboard, Thailand
- United Nations International School of Hanoi, Vietnam
- Hanoi International School, Vietnam
- International School of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

The association provides social connections and opportunities for sport competitions and cultural exchanges for Secondary students (grades 6-12) throughout the school year including; sports exchanges for the Middle School and High School, a Cultural Exchange, and a Model United Nations (an academic simulation of the United Nations General Assembly).
VIS encourages all students to take advantage of the opportunities available to them within the VISa program. A wide range of experiences helps students prepare for the future in this ever-changing world. Universities are always in search of well-rounded, emotionally intelligent, and interpersonally skilled students. VIS is also mindful that students have various academic commitments and supports students to have a balanced experience at school.
VIS acknowledges the unique passions and interests of our students, staff and community in Vientiane and what they may offer the VISa. For this reason, the program is always evolving. If you have an idea for a new activity, or would like to offer your skills or an activity to the program, please contact the Co Curricular Program Office.
