Joel C. Harris Academy
"Excellence By Design"
Welcome to Harris Academy!
Harris Academy is currently applying to become an IB authorized MYP school!
Harris Academy is a candidate school for the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP). Our school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These schools share a common philosophy - a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Harris Academy believes is important for our students. We feel confident you and your child will find what we have to offer here at Harris Academy invaluable to their education.
*Only schools authorized by the IB organization can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programmes (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme (DP) and in addition the IB Career-related Certificate. Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
To help your student be successful please check out SAISD's Middle School Education Planning Guide to help guide them on their Roadway to Graduation.
