Grade Name changes

      In an attempt to align our ITA school system with the general education system, we are changing the names of the grade levels at ITA from the coming school year 2020-2021.

We are making every attempt to make this transition as smooth as possible. For the coming school year, books will have the new grade levels reflected on the covers. Since we have been using the current system for several years now, the changes may not be reflected in all places in our books, lesson plans, website etc all at once. We are working towards that but as always please do let us know if you notice any errors caused by these changes (ITA Curriculum Planning Team: cpt@catamilacademy.org) and we will do our best to address that as soon as possible. We appreciate your support and encouragement with this transition.
