The IBMA Academy offers an affordable opportunity for new and experienced teachers, administrators, and coordinators to share and expand their knowledge of IB so they can enter into the upcoming school year with new ideas and perspectives on implementing IB in their school. Sessions will be offered in each of the programs offered throughout the continuum (Primary Years, Middle Years, Diploma, and Career-related Programmes).
