A prerequisite for admission to International Baccalaureate (IB) programs in Canada is completion of the Canadian Achievement Test (CAT). The CAT is a standardized test that measures a student's capabilities in the areas of reading, language, spelling, and mathematics.
A student who has been attentive, engaged, committed, and successful in school may not need to do any additional preparation for the CAT test. That said, admission to IB programs is a competitive process, and a student's grade on the CAT is an important consideration when reviewing each application.
The DEFT Learning Academy offers programs in English Language Arts and Math that strengthen each student's skills in these core subjects. Benefits accrue over an extended period in the DEFT programs. If your child is looking ahead to applying to IB in 2020-2021, then enrollment in DEFT programs will help to prepare her/him, as well as to support while attending the IB (Secondary School) program.
If your child is planning to write the CAT in January 2020 for admission to the 2020-2021 academic year, DEFT offers an opportunity for students to write a simulation CAT test.
The DEFT Learning Academy enrichment programs help students prepare for the International Baccalaureate (IB) program in Grades 9-12.
