Published July 6, 2023 at 4:49 pm

A Milton secondary school is hoping to be able to offer a high-quality learning program beginning in 2026.

St. Kateri Tekakwitha Catholic Secondary School was recently approved as a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program.

This means St. Kateri Tekakwitha is now pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy: a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education.

As the school works toward becoming an IB World School in September 2026, St. Kateri Tekakwitha will be offering a Grade 9 pre-IB Program beginning in September 2024.

Students and families interested in learning more about the Grade 9 Pre-IB Program are encouraged to attend the St. Kateri Tekakwitha Catholic Secondary School Parent Information Night on Thursday, Oct. 19, from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

More information about the Parent Information Night will follow.

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Program is a globally-recognized program that challenges students to excel in their studies and in their personal development.

Students enrolled in the IB Program study topics in greater depth, helping them develop the knowledge and the critical thinking skills necessary for success in post-secondary education and beyond.

If approved as an IB World School, St. Kateri Tekakwitha Catholic Secondary School will join a vibrant and active global community of more than 5,000 schools in more than 150 countries.

These schools are committed to the IB’s mission of developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
