Lehigh Valley Academy Regional Charter School is a candidate school* for the the CP.  This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School.

IB World Schools share a common philosophy--a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education--that we believe is important for our students.

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes:  the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP).  Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
