What is an IB education? from International Baccalaureate on Vimeo.

The York Academy Regional Charter School is an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) and Middle Years Programme (MYP) School. 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 perse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programs of international education that share a powerful vision.*

International Baccalaureate Mission Statement:

The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

*Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programs: 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.
