The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme

The IB Middle Years Programme is the learning framework for students in the Year 7 and 8 and the 9 and 10 Village. Santa Maria has been an authorised provider as a global school since 2014 and in 2020 has undergone evaluation. Within this internationally recognised program students develop:

  • problem solving skills individually and in collaboration with others
  • skills to critically integrate technology and other resources into their learning
  • respect for other cultures and ideas
  • links between learning and real life
  • an understanding of their role as global citizens

The content of the MYP follows the Victorian Curriculum (Year 7-10) while the delivery is reflective of the IB Framework.

The MYP creates a platform from which our students confidently launch into their senior years of schooling with a suite of skills that prepare them for success in future study and the workplace.
