International Baccalaureate



All Saints Episcopal Day School is fully authorized as an International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) school. 
 
What is the IB Middle Years Programme?
IB’s Middle Years Programme empowers students to inquire into a wide range of issues and ideas of significance locally, nationally, and globally. It is challenging and the assessment is rigorous. The programme develops young people who are creative, critical, and reflective thinkers.
 
The inspiring programme fits in with our school's existing high standards for academic rigor and closely aligns with the mission and philosophy of All Saints. Our students in Grades 6-8 will participate in the Middle Years Programme, however, the entire student body will be positively impacted by this authorization.
 
Learner Profile Traits
For our Middle School students, the IB programme will foster the distinctive set of attributes as outlined in the International Baccalaureate Learner Profile.



International Baccalaureate Mission Statement

The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.  To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.  These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with difference, can also be right.
