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.
