International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme

Academy International Primary Years Programme

‚ÄčThe IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) nurtures and develops young students as caring, active participants in a lifelong journey of learning.

Through its inquiry-led, transdisciplinary framework, the PYP challenges students to think for themselves and take responsibility for their learning as they explore local and global issues and opportunities in real life contexts.

Academy International offers the PYP program for students in kindergarten through grade 5.

The IB 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.


Our 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.
