International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program

The PYP (Primary Years Programme) is the International Baccalaureate designation for Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6. We believe that children can best acquire a rich body of knowledge and the skills needed for future learning through a curriculum that is developmentally appropriate. Our programme builds year by year, and is an expression of our mission of Experience, Learn, and Grow.

St. Jude’s Academy is more than just a typical elementary school. Students in Junior Kindergarten through to Grade 6 experience much more than a one-classroom day. Through specialist driven rotary classes, students have the opportunity to explore the subjects of French, Music, Art, Drama and Gym outside the classroom; whilst core teachers conduct classes according to the IB PYP methods in the subjects of Math, English, Science and Social Studies.
