Middle Years Programme
In June of 2016, Notre Dame Academy became an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World school for the five-year Middle Years Programme (MYP) offering MYP years 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.
The MYP is designed for students in 6th through 10th grades. It is a logical extension of the IB PYP. ND Academy has been an authorized PYP school since 2009. As described by the IB, the MYP “is part of an educational continuum that emphasizes concepts, ideas and issues that cross disciplinary, cultural, national and geographical boundaries. Within a coherent, comprehensive curriculum framework, the MYP provides academic challenge and encourages development of life skills on which students rely throughout the course of independent, purpose-driven lives.”
