We are an IB candidate school

We have great news! TISA is a Candidate School for the Primary Years Programme (PYP)! 🎉

From February 11, the Theodore International Startup Academy (TISA)* is a Candidate School** for the Primary Years Programme (PYP).
This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy — a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that TISA believes is important for our students.

*School final documentation is under development. Information on this website may be updated.
**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, or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit
