A rigorous college prep program, students are immersed in the full Diploma Program beginning in the 11th grade. Students enroll in challenging coursework in six different subjects: English, Math, World Languages, Individuals and Societies, Experimental Sciences, and the Arts. In addition to their content areas, students engage with what IB calls The Core: Creativity, Activity, & Service (CAS), Theory of Knowledge (TOK), and the Extended Essay (EE). The belief is that students leave the DP as well rounded, holistic critical thinkers who will change the world.
Students interested in the IB Diploma Program will be admitted if they are able to demonstrate:
- Intellectual curiosity and a strong aptitude for learning- A successful academic record- A willingness to take academic risks and to reflect on the nature of knowledge- An ability and willingness to undertake independent research- An ability and willingness to undertake projects and activities that often involve community service- Academic and personal integrity- Strong attendance record
If you wish to apply, please complete the following form. On the last page of the form you will be asked the following question: What do you hope to gain from participating in the Diploma Program? This is a short answer question that will give us a better idea of what you are looking forward to; your answer will not be a determining factor in admission.
