IB Middle Years Program
Canadian Academy was authorized to offer the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) in June 2011.
The MYP is a globally-recognized curriculum framework, representing current best practices in teaching, learning and assessment for students aged 11-16. Through its philosophy of critical inquiry, based on a strong foundation of knowledge, skills and concepts, the MYP promotes independent and creative thinking. With an emphasis on developing the whole learner through the approaches to learning and our role as global citizens through the global contexts, the MYP is an exciting learning experience, complementing our school's Mission and Core Values. Building on students' curiosity from the Primary Years Programme, the MYP helps guide students through adolescence and leads them into success in the Diploma Programme in grades 11 and 12.
As students develop their disciplinary and inter-disciplinary studies, they will learn through eight subject groups (external links):
Throughout the programme of inquiry in the MYP, student will explore concepts and contexts that help us find our place in time and space, see our connections to others and to the world around us. With a commitment to authentic service, the MYP helps helps learner see opportunities for action in order to make the future more sustainable for all. The MYP culminates with a student-designed Personal Project, an invigorating exploration of ideas and issues that demonstrate our students' developing identities as young leaders and positive examples of the IB's Learner Profile in action.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Middle Years Programme here at Canadian Academy.
