International Baccalaureate Programme


The International Baccalaureate Organization is a nonprofit educational foundation, motivated by its mission, and focused on the student. Their three programs help develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world. The aim of all IB programs is to develop internationally-minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet help to create a better and more peaceful world. IB offers high quality programs of international education to a worldwide community of schools. Currently there are more than 659,000 IB students at 3,288 schools in 141 countries.
