St. Jude's Academy best private school Mississauga IB school JK-12 continuum GTA


The International Baccalaureate model is founded on principles of ethics, citizenship and global identity. At St. Jude’s Academy, our community works to make a difference wherever we can, by organizing fundraisers and charity events for noble causes, and teaching our students to always act with integrity, kindness and upstanding character.

For our Diploma Programme (DP) students, the IB’s Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) program is an integral part of their education and their overall experience at school. Students complete a CAS Project as part of their requirements for the IB Diploma. Creativity calls for artistic, out-of-the-box thinking, Activity asks students to engage in some form of physical activity and Service incorporates community volunteer work into the student’s academic life. All together, CAS contributes an element to the IB program that goes beyond the classroom in providing the student with invaluable interpersonal and collaboration skills, while encouraging them to become compassionate, active world citizens.
