In September 2011, Seaquam Secondary introduced the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme as an alternative to Advanced Placement courses in grades 11 and 12. 

 

The IB Diploma is a prestigious international pre-university qualification and is recognized by universities and governments throughout the world.  It has been in existence for over 30 years and is now offered in more than 1,000 schools in 95 countries. 

 

All IB Diploma students take six subjects across the disciplines in a manner that assures both breadth and depth of study.  Learning how to learn and how to evaluate information critically in a global world is an important part of the IB Diploma Programme.  Personal growth alongside academic growth is another.  Flexibility of choice allows students to follow their interests while the structure of the diploma safeguards the breadth of study.  The deliberate combination of breadth and depth in both academic and personal areas equips students with the skills and attitudes they require for higher education or employment, and engender international understanding and responsible citizenship.

 

An international education does not replace a national one, but refocuses it and adds to it.  We live in a world of global economies and communications and Seaquam recognizes that students will be part of this world and need the education that allows them to live and to succeed in it. 

 

In deciding to study the IB Diploma at Seaquam, students will take a fully integrated and active part in the life of the school.   All sports and extra-curricular activities are undertaken as part of the wider school community.
