MARYMOUNT ACADEMY TO EXPAND
 “INTERNATIONAL” PROGRAM OF STUDIES

MONTREAL,  NOVEMBER  16,  2009-    Marymount Academy  in N.D.G. has announced plans to begin the process of expanding its  international program of studies for next year.
The  International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (IBMYP) will be offered to all Secondary Cycle 1, Year 1 ( Grade 7)  students, as of September 2010. The aim of the IBMYP  is to help students relate the content of the classroom to the realities of the world outside by combining knowledge, experience and critical observation.

Students who have already registered for the regular curriculum in 2010-2011 will be contacted and invited to write a placement exam on November 21, 2009.  A second placement exam will be scheduled in March 2010 and subsequent requests for entry to the program will be met on a case by case basis.  “We will have an advanced stream, with more French, and a general stream, which will now include Spanish,” says Principal, Luigi Santamaria.  “In offering an advanced and general stream, there will be a place for all learners.  Marymount Academy will continue to be an inclusive educational environment.  We hope this will increase the opportunities for all Marymount students to benefit from the Middle Years Program.”

Parents and students seeking further information about the IB Program can log on to www.emsb.qc.ca/marymount or contact Mr. Santamaria at 514-488-8144.
