We are proud to be accredited for the Primary Years Program (PYP) by the International Baccalaureate Organization!
The International Baccalaureate, or IB, is an internationally recognized teaching and learning program that engages students to become leaders of their own learning. The PYP will benefit ALL students and focuses on developing the whole child inside and outside of the classroom. Building on the GEE curriculum, teaching and learning will become more student-led and inquiry-driven. Subjects will be connected through inquiries into broad themes such as Who We Are, Where We Are in Time and Place, How the World Works, How We Express Ourselves, How We Organize Ourselves and Sharing the Planet. Students build character through the emphasis on the Learner Profile which is a set of attributes that define the type of learner IB students aims to become. The profile combines knowledge, skills, creative, and critical thinking to educate the whole child and prepare them to be active and responsible global citizens.
Central Academy is a multicultural, public school focused on educating the whole child in a nurturing environment. We provide a learning community where students, staff members and parents are full partners. These partners share an understanding of the school’s purpose and a responsibility for ensuring that every child will be academically and socially successful.
