We are an "IB for All" school, meaning that all students at the PGIA are enrolled in this rigorous program, not just a select few. Twenty-five % of this year's graduating class earned their IB Diploma and 100% of the class graduated with a fully accredited MSA diploma. All students are attending their first choice, first tier university with substantial financial aid packages. The International Baccalaureate program has been offered at the PGIA for the last six years.

The International Baccalaureate program is a world-wide international teaching methodology that focuses on creating life-long learners and critical thinkers that are responsible, caring, global citizens. The PGIA is proud to be authorized in both the IB Middle Years Program in grades  7-10, as well as the IB Diploma Program in grades 11-12.

Recent IB studies state that the university enrollment & graduation rate for students who are IB Diploma participants, as well as IB Diploma earners, is considerably higher than that of other curricula. Universities actively solicit IB students to attend their institutions.

"I am immensely proud of the students of the Class of 2016. In these young adults I see such determination, tenacity, grit and optimism. Through rigorous challenges, both academic and personal, they persevered with grace and humility. I am excited to see what impacts they will have on our world and what these upcoming community leaders will do for our efforts towards creating an environmentally friendly and peaceful world." says Gloria Zakers, PGIA Director.  More info on the PGIA IB program can be obtained from Ms. Zakers, at gzakers@vimsia.org
