Connecticut IB Academy Wins College Success Award


The Connecticut IB Academy (CIBA) has received’s 2021 College Success Award, which recognizes and celebrates public high schools that excel at preparing students to enroll and succeed in college. CIBA also earned this award in 2019 and 2020.

In addition to winning this year’s annual award, CIBA has also been selected as one of only 1,770 schools in the country to win the inaugural College Success Award - Gold — an additional, elevated level of distinction to recognize schools that have a multiyear track record of college success.

CIBA Principal Kathleen Simoneau said, “I'm proud of this recognition from GreatSchools and the Gold Level designation.  They are a testament of CIBA's longstanding commitment to prepare students for success at the college/university level.”

The College Success Award is based on data that show how schools prepare students to succeed after high school, including whether they enroll in college, are ready for college-level coursework, and persist into their second year.
