The International Baccalaureate Programme offers three high quality educational programmes forming a worldwide community of schools. The IB works with more than 3,293 schools in 141 countries. The introductory programme is the Primary Years Programme, PYP, which is a whole school educational model for grades Pre-k to 5. The Middle Years Programme, MYP, is a 5 year educational framework designed for grades 6-10 and finally the Diploma Programme offers college level academic curriculum for grades 11 and 12. Students graduating from the Diploma Programme earn on average 30 credits when entering Florida Universities. Currently, only 24 schools in North America and the Caribbean offer the entire IB continuum; Freedom 7 and Cocoa Beach Jr/Sr High School being one of them. All three programmes offer a comprehensive, research-based curriculum, aligned with rigorous international standards, aimed at developing life-long learners with 21st century skills.
