St. Cecelia Interparochial Catholic School Officially Authorized as an IB World School
After a rigorous, three year candidacy process I am so happy and very proud to announce St. Cecelia Interparochial Catholic School is officially an authorized International Baccalaureate World School offering the Middle Years Programme (IB MYP)!
It has been quite a journey. SCS underwent a rigorous candidacy process to become a member of the IB World School community. Receiving this official notification was the culmination of a tremendous amount of work on the part of our IB Coordinators, a team of dedicated faculty and staff, and highly supportive administrators. The IB MYP is a perfect blending with the already higher standards and teachings we offer as a Catholic School. The IB MYP will support our middle school students by giving them the vision, materials, and quality of teaching they need to be emerging leaders in their communities and beyond. With our Catholic teachings, the IB MYP will further strengthen our middle school program by developing knowledgeable, caring young people who will be ready to successfully navigate their futures and make contributions resulting in a more harmonious and peaceful world.
IB World Schools share a common educational philosophy and commitment to providing a high quality, challenging education recognized world-wide for excellence. Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization as IB World Schools can offer any of its academic programmes. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit http://www.ibo.org. Look for future dates when our IB Coordinator, Mrs. Steele, will share more details with parents about our IB MYP.
