CEESA leads educational transformation through collaboration.

The Central & Eastern European Schools Association (CEESA) was founded as a result of the growth of American and International Schools in Central and Eastern Europe. In many cases, the schools were geographically isolated from each other and from the main stream of American and International Education. 

In 2015 QSI International School of Sarajevo officially become a member of CEESA (Central & Eastern European School Association). CEESA provides opportunities for students to travel, host students, meet new friends from different cultures, have fun, and compete in athletics and academics.
