About Us

Calgary International Academy is a non-profit private-educational institution in Calgary, Alberta, which aims to provide International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP), integrated with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math), and Alberta Education Program of Study in a family-oriented and results-driven environment.

The school is a “Candidate School” for the Primary Years Programme in pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy–a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education that the school believes is important for our students.

Mission: Calgary International Academy aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect, life-long learners, empowering students to be innovators in chosen fields, leaders in our communities, and the driving force of our future generations.

Vision: To be the leader in providing the latest educational methodologies and world-class programs, and develop and nurture students to be well-transitioned learners to university, colleges/post-secondary studies, and beyond (life-long learning). We believe that the early years of active learning in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) lays a solid foundation for future and lifelong learning in MYP (Middle Years Programme) and DP (Diploma Programme) and the integration of STEAM prepares young learners for the 21st-century skills and competence.
