IBMYP - Middle Years Programme

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) is for students aged 11-16.

The MYP is a curriculum that challenges students to link their academic studies with the practical world. It is a five-year program that can be adopted by schools either in partnership or in shorter formats of two, three, or four years. Upon completion of the MYP, students are well-equipped to pursue either the IB Diploma Programme (DP) or the Career-related Programme (CP).

The MYP aims to develop active learners and internationally-minded young people who can empathize with others and pursue lives of purpose and meaning. The programme empowers students to inquire into a wide range of issues and ideas of significance, locally, nationally, and globally, resulting in young people who are creative, critical, and reflective thinkers.

How is the MYP curriculum structured at Catalyze?

The MYP curriculum framework consists of eight subject groups that offer a comprehensive and well-rounded education to young adolescents. Out of the 8 subject groups, the following subjects are offered in Catalyze which are PERSONALIZED TO THE POTENTIAL OF THE LEARNER AND TO THE LEARNING STYLE OF THE LEARNER.

The objective of the MYP program at Catalyze is to help students develop into well-rounded individuals who are capable of independent thinking, critical analysis, and self-reflection. The MYP program emphasizes the importance of service as action, which involves making a positive impact on the community and environment.

Additionally, the MYP curriculum focuses on STEM education as an important perspective from which to consider integrated teaching and learning in concepts and skills related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The program's structure provides various opportunities for students to establish connections between traditional academic subjects, including STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) courses.
