International Baccalaureate

IB LogoThe International Baccalaureate (IB) program sponsored by the International Baccalaureate is used in IB World Schools around the globe. 

Schools complete a lengthy application and authorization process to become approved to offer one of the four standardized IB programs:

pypThe Primary Years Programme (PYP) for students ages 3 to 12 focuses on the development of the whole child in the classroom and in the world outside.


MYPThe Middle Years Programme (MYP) for students ages 11 to 16 provides a framework of academic challenge and life skills through embracing and transcending traditional school subjects.


DPThe Diploma Programme (DP) for students ages 16 to 19 is a demanding two-year standardized curriculum. Most higher education institutions award college credit for high marks on IB Diploma Programme exams and retroactive credit for the earning of an IB Diploma.


IB Career related program The Career-related Programme (CP) for students ages 16 to 19 is the newest offering from IB. The CP incorporates the vision and educational principles of the IB programmes into a unique offering designed for students who wish to engage in career-related learning.
