Application time is coming...

Vista Academy is an International Baccalaureate, Primary Years Programme, Candidate School who is putting the "A" in STEAM.

Vista Academy is a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme and pursuing authorization as an IB World School.

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 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 www.ibo.org


Update: We have submitted our application and are anticipating an authorization visit in the early part of 2017. During the candidate phase, the school takes actions necessary to fulfill the International Baccalaureate® (IB) requirements for authorization. This phase involved putting in place all the necessary processes and resources to deliver the PYP, including teacher training, curriculum development and providing opportunities for teachers to plan collaboratively for both horizontal and vertical articulation of the curriculum. For more information on IB-PYP, click on the bulldog above.
