Welcome to South View's IB Diploma Program!

Cumberland County's Premier University Preparation Program


The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation that develops the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world.  Taking a holistic approach to education, the Diploma Program practices hands-on learning while teaching students how to think critically and independently. 

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program at South View High School is the premier college-preparatory academy in Cumberland County.  We have the highest test scores in the state with 100% college-acceptance rate - many to top universities in the country.   Students in the IB Academy may also receive an International Baccalaureate Diploma from the IB which is recognized worldwide and may earn students with college credit.

Class sizes are generally smaller than traditional classes and are led by highly qualified instructors who have received specialized IB training.
