The International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme

The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) prepares students in Grades 7 to 10 for their senior years of high school and their journey into university. Upon completing elementary school education, curriculum expects more independence and responsibility from students as they enter into a more intensive part of their journey. At St. Jude’s Academy, we direct our attention towards making these middle years a supportive, comprehensive preparation for high school and university. Students hone and expand on skills learned in the Primary Years Programme, and are introduced to new skills that will guide them through high school and life beyond.

In order to our prepare students for the rotary-type environment of high school and university, students have core teachers, who teach the subjects of Math, English, Science and History, and they have specialists, who teach them French, Art, Music, Drama and Physical Education.

Our students also take a class dedicated to Media Arts. This class focuses on the rapidly growing dependence on technology, including social media, for global communication and information. St. Jude’s Academy recognizes how important it is for young adults to have relevant, modern-world skills to navigate themselves in our ever-changing technological culture.
