International Baccalaureate Organization

With our commitment to producing engaged global citizens, we’ve adopted a learning program that takes a global approach to understand big ideas across disciplines.

The International Baccalaureate program establishes a global view of learning for students that emphasizes asking questions and searching for answers. It’s less about taking notes and more about asking questions. Students discover answers as well as new questions by working on individual and group projects with teacher facilitation to discover solutions. It’s an invigorating academic way of learning that requires initiative, organization, and perseverance, and results in students who are confident being the leaders and innovators of tomorrow.

As an IB authorized school, Daystar Academy is committed to helping our students understand the philosophical underpinning of knowledge through the guidance of hands-on educators who engage each student through topics of study that hone their passions and an understanding of the world around them.
