MESSAGE FROM Ms. Kathleen Simoneau
It is with great enthusiasm and pride that I welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year at the Connecticut IB Academy, an International Baccalaureate World School©. We continue to strive for excellence to provide a high-quality education for each child to meet the demands of our ever-changing global society.
CIBA is unique because of its diversity, numerous accolades, focus on service and the development of each learner, and established traditions. The students, families, and staff are the heart of CIBA. With the support from the EHPS Board of Education members and EHPS Central Office team, CIBA continues to reach new heights.
Last year, due to the efforts of our staff and support from EHPS Board of Education and EHPS Central Office team, we earned full authorization to offer the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme® (MYP) in grades nine and ten. This prestigious distinction will ensure that our students are better prepared for the demands of the Diploma Programme® (DP). From this point forward, 100% of our students will be in a recognized International Baccalaureate program during all four years of their high school experience. This year we will also have our reauthorization visit to maintain our authorization to offer the Diploma Programme®. We are looking forward to the feedback that we gain that will further enhance our programme.
If you have any questions about CIBA, please feel free to contact me at (860) 622-5590. I look forward to speaking with you.
