International Baccalaureate

St John’s Anglican College is an IB World School, authorised to implement the Primary Years Program (PYP). St John’s is currently working towards authorisation to implement the Middle Year Program (MYP) which is on track for September 2018.

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 programs of international education that share a powerful vision.

*Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programs: 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 programs, visit
