Moncton, New Brunswick, 15 Mar 2024  – Eastgate Academy proudly announces its dual milestone achievement of becoming the first International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) School in the Maritime Provinces and its relocation to a new facility in Moncton. 

This significant step forward not only highlights Eastgate Academy’s commitment to delivering an internationally recognized standard of education but also signals an exciting chapter of growth and innovation for the institution and the Greater Moncton community.

The International Baccalaureate Programme is renowned worldwide for its rigorous curriculum, emphasis on inquiry-based learning, and promotion of intercultural understanding. With its newly acquired status as an IB PYP School, Eastgate Academy joins a global community of educators dedicated to fostering critical thinking, creativity, and a passion for lifelong learning. The authorization process involved fastidious evaluations and assessments by the International Baccalaureate Organization, ensuring that Eastgate Academy adheres to the IB Programme’s exacting standards and practices.

Principal Kathryn Crossman expressed her excitement, stating, “Achieving this milestone is a testament to the dedication of our educators and the unwavering support of our community. We’re thrilled to bring this unique educational opportunity to the Greater Moncton Area.”

The relocation to Moncton represents yet another leap forward for Eastgate Academy. Providing a modern and expansive learning environment further fosters creative, collaborative, and holistic student development, paramount to the Eastgate approach. Situated with abundant local amenities including nearby nature parks, sports fields, and community centers, the new facility reflects Eastgate Academy’s commitment to providing an unparalleled contemporary educational experience and foundation.

Renovations on the new facility are slated to begin in March, with Eastgate Academy expected to open its doors to students in the Fall of 2024. “Our aim is to create a space that mirrors the high-quality learning experience our students participate in each day,” remarked Principal Kathryn Crossman.

Amidst these changes, Eastgate Academy remains steadfast in its commitment to student-focused excellence in education, combining the British Columbia curriculum with the globally recognized International Baccalaureate. This unique blend fosters strong leadership, character-building, and personal growth in each student, ensuring a well-rounded educational experience.

Applications to attend Eastgate are now open for students from Kindergarten to Grade 9 for the 2024-25 academic year. Families are invited to begin their exploration by attending one of the enlightening information sessions or embarking on a school tour.
