Wayside: Sci-Tech Preparatory is a premier tuition-free college preparatory charter school serving grades 6-12 in south Austin with a special curricular focus on science and technology applications. Wayside: Sci-Tech Preparatory is a candidate school* for the Middle Years and Diploma Programmes. 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 Sci-Tech Preparatory believes is important for our students. We will be applying for the IB Career Certificate Programme (grades 11-12) in the fall of 2015.
*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 IB Career-related Certificate Programme. Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
