The IB Diploma Programme

The IB Diploma Programme is an academically challenging and balanced programme of education, with final examinations, that prepares students aged 16 to 19 for success at university and in life beyond. Students take seven IB courses a year in their junior and senior years. It has been designed to address the intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being of students. The programme has gained recognition and respect from the world’s leading universities.

The program is unique because of its academic and personal rigour. IB challenges students to excel in their studies and in their personal development, while aiming to inspire a love of learning throughout life that is marked by enthusiasm and empathy. It aspires to help schools develop well-rounded students who respond to challenges with optimism and an open mind, are confident in their own identities, make ethical decisions, join with others in celebrating our common humanity and are prepared to apply what they learn in real-world, complex and unpredictable situations.
