We are thrilled to announce that All Saints Episcopal Day School is a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP). Earlier this year, we received authorization as an IB Middle Years Programme. The PYP candidacy is the next step in our efforts to offer the IB programme to all our students.
*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
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.
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.
