Middle Years Programme (MYP)

  • The International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Program (MYP) at Holy Trinity helps students in grade 10 develop the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, and skills necessary to participate actively and responsibly in a changing world. This is the 5th and final year of the programme that began at St. Clement.

IB DIPLOMA PROGRAMME

Holy Trinity’s IB Diploma Program strives to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring individuals through intercultural understanding and respect. This two-year academically enriched program offers students a chance to access a greater breadth and depth of content in their subjects, as they prepare for the competitive world of postsecondary education.

The IB Mission

The International Baccalaureate Organization 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 IBO 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.

What is the IB learner profile?

The IB learner profile is the IB mission statement translated into a set of learning outcomes for the 21st century.

The aim of all IB programs is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
