Promoting personal development and a passion for learning, the International Academy @ The Park (IA@P) provides students with the opportunity to approach their high school studies from a global perspective. Cultural appreciation, theory of knowledge, global citizenship, high rigor and high intensity are the hallmarks of this academy.
The Plymouth-Canton Educational Park is on track to be able to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program beginning in 2014-15. Students who enroll in the IA@P will take courses which prepare them for the rigors of the IB diploma. They will earn the 2-year IB diploma during their junior and senior years.
