Saint Andrew’s School (Boca Raton, FL) Gains IB Accreditation

| August 25, 2010

Saint Andrew's School began school this week as a fully accredited International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (DP) World School.

Head of School, Dr. Ann Marie Krejcarek sees the IB's rigor as a key to graduate's future successes:

"Answering our students’ and parents’ calls for the very best college preparatory education has led to addition of the IB Diploma Programme...By offering the IB, our students can take advantage of this internationally renowned program and a rigorous curriculum that provides tools for success in the global marketplace for the twenty-first century.”(Saint Andrew's School Debuts International Baccalaureate August 23)

Saint Andrew's believes so strongly in the IB that the school is "in candidacy to add the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) and Middle Years Programme (MYP) in 2011."

To our knowledge, Saint Andrew's becomes the seventh US boarding school offering the IB.
