International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB DP)

  • IB DP Coursework is rigorous and highly regarded by colleges and universities around the world
  • IB DP courses will be offered in Grades 11-12. All classes are 2-year courses with a culminating external exam at the end of Year 2 (12th grade). 
  • IB DP scholars have the opportunity to complete the full IB Diploma, which includes the Theory of Knowledge course, Creativity, Activity, and Service requirements, and the Extended Essay. This demonstrates to universities commitment to rigor and imminent success at the university level.
  • Scholars can receive college credit for their IB DP coursework through completion of the course and successful exam performance. Universities often grant credit for scores of 5 and above on the exam (Highest Score for each exam=7 or 30+ overall for those pursuing the IB Diploma). Each university has unique requirements.
  • Scholars who engage in IB DP coursework have higher acceptance rates, higher college-level success, and higher retention and university completion rates.
