The IB Diploma Programme offers two levels of rigour that often provide the student advanced university credit and college readiness.
The Higher Level requires 240-hour courses taught over two years in fields of study, such as English, Business Management, Physics, Visual Arts, Film, Spanish, and more.
The Standard Level requires 150-hour courses taught over two years in fields of study, such as Environmental Systems and Societies, Sports, Math, Visual Arts, Film, French, and more.
TOK: The interdisciplinary Theory of Knowledge (TOK) course serves as a philosophical and theoretical framework for the program. Students explore the nature of knowledge across disciplines and develop an appreciation for the cultural context of meaning.
CAS: Participation in the school’s Creativity, Activity, and Service program encourages students to be involved in artistic pursuits, sports, and community service, thus fostering their appreciation for life outside the academic arena.
EE: The 4,000-word extended essay affords students the opportunity to deeply investigate a topic of individual interest, acquainting them with the independent research and writing skills expected at the university level.
