At Strelitz International Academy (SIA), we continuously look for ways to raise the bar when it comes to a superior educational experience. That’s why we are an International Baccalaureate® (IB®) Primary Years Programme (PYP) candidate school, offering a specialized, global-oriented curriculum for infants through fifth grade students.

When searching for affordable private schools serving Virginia Beach, Norfolk, and Chesapeake, put Strelitz International Academy at the top of your list. As a private elementary school, we offer smaller class sizes, an educational process that focuses on the student as a whole, and we encourage parents to take an active role in continuing the educational process outside the classroom.

The International Baccalaureate® (IB®) Primary Years Programme (PYP) we utilize in our educational process aims to help students develop the skills, knowledge, and attitudes they will need to excel in their studies, as well as in their personal growth. Informed by research into how students learn, how educators teach, and the principles and practice of effective educational assessment, the programme places a major emphasis on inquiry-based learning, both in the classroom and beyond.

We invite you to visit our campus to see the Strelitz International Academy difference for yourself.
