Grades 8 & 9

The York Academy is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School that is authorized to provide the Middle Years Programme (MYP) to students in grades 6 - 9. The Academy's application for candidacy for the challenging Diploma Programme (10-12) was recently approved, and our staff are now implementing and designing the requirements established by the International Baccalaureate Organization. 

IB World Schools share a common philosophy - a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high-quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.

*Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP) or the IB Career-Related Certificate (IBCC). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit
