Preparing High School Students for College Success
The IB program for high school students, Diploma Programme, is a rigorous, two-year program that results in personal and academic development and a globally recognized diploma.
IB students take college-level courses in high school, which helps them make a smooth transition into higher education. Additionally, since IB is an international program, colleges around the world recognize IB students and understand the program’s rigor and benefits. Students who are interested in attending an international college have an easier time getting accepted with an IB diploma. IB also offers a global alumni network, which allows students to connect with other IB graduates around the world.
As an IB World school, we integrate the Diploma Programme curriculum and STEM-specific programs for high school students. The curriculum is made up of the six subject groups the DP Core, comprising of the Theory of Knowledge, the Extended Essay, and Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS).
The Six Subject Groups Are:
- Studies in English language and literature
- Language acquisition – Spanish
- Individuals and societies – Psychology
- Sciences – Physics
- Mathematics – Applications and Integrations
- The Arts – Visual Arts
Yes! IB Programs challenge students to participate in programs that can lead them to some of the highest-ranking universities around the world.
Additionally, IB students typically earn more college credits for an equivalent score on an IB exam than an AP exam at John Hopkins University. At the University of Maryland, it can be up to twice as much.
Students that graduate from the IB Diploma Program also have the opportunity to receive up to 30 college credits and earn Sophomore or advanced standing upon entrance to college.
