The Academy is now officially authorised from the International Baccalaureate Organisation to offer the International Baccalaureate Career Program (IBCP).

In this regard, the senior leadership team from IB visited the school on 01 June 2023.

The school was incredibly happy to host the other members of this team - Dr. Nicole Bien, Chief Schools Officer (IB), and Mr Mahesh Balakrishnan, IB - Business and Development Officer, India and Nepal.

Continuing with this tradition, Children's Academy International School aims to impart skill-based education through the IBCP course.

The guests were accorded a traditional welcome highlighting the rich Indian culture. The students put up a colourful Lezim, the lively folk dance from Maharashtra, leaving everyone awe-struck with their energy!

During the formal function, the guests were mesmerized by the mellifluous welcome song and the splendid recital of Bharatnatyam and Kathak dances, performed by the talented students of the school.

The IB program is at the pinnacle of education owing to its excellent curriculum that emphasizes on value and skill development which aligns with our ideology of education. I am confident of our dedicated team which is engaged in nurturing the young minds to become passionate and responsible leaders of tomorrow."

During his visit to Children's Academy International School, the IB Chief Mr Olli-Pekka expressed his delight and appreciated the vision and the forward-thinking philosophy of Children's Academy. He mentioned that IB came into force in the year 1968 and Children's Academy was founded around the same time in 1970. He was pleased to add that the two organisations of similar age are getting together for developing active, compassionate and life-long learners.
