Our IB Primary Years and Middle Years Programmes

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) guides junior students from pre-kindergarten to Grade 6 by teaching them how to learn effectively, inquire for themselves and communicate. With a focus on fundamentals, PYP students are equipped with essential skills and encouraged to become independent learners, so that they may continue to grow and aspire to great things in the following years.

After Grade 6, students move on to our Middle Years Programme (MYP), which is designed to further build a student's confidence and strengthen learning skills. The MYP spans from Grades 7 to 10, and, in preparation for becoming high school senior students, they are inspired to find their passions, become active citizens and hone personal responsibility.

International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme

Our upper years Diploma Programme (DP) for students in Grades 11 and 12, aged 16-19, is an academically rigorous program designed to prepare students for university. The DP culminates and expands on all of the essential, lifelong skills students learned in lower grades, by making applications to university and real life, allowing students even more opportunities to learn independently and inspiring them to dream big and contribute good to the world. Graduates leave St. Jude’s Academy with a strong sense of self and self-confidence, ready to take on university and life beyond.
