Advanced Academic Programs


International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme

The International Baccalaureate offers K-12 programmes focusing on international education that develops the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills needed to live, learn, and work in a rapidly globalizing world. IB has a hard-earned reputation for high standards of teaching, pedagogical leadership and student achievement in the form of international education and rigorous assessment. The Primary Years Programme (PYP), for ages 3-12, focuses on the development of the whole child, preparing students to become active, caring, lifelong learners. The Middle Years Programme (MYP), for ages 11-16, prepares students to undertake the Diploma Programme (DP). The DP, for ages 16-19, encourages students to seek the prestigious IB Diploma, recognized for its breadth and depth of knowledge, rigorous assessments, possible college credit, and advanced university recognition. The DP is a pre-university, liberal arts curriculum comprised of advanced courses in Grades 9 and 10 and rigorous IB courses in Grades 11 and 12. The IB DP is designed to promote understanding of global citizenship while encouraging students to become critical thinkers and compassionate members of a global society. The IB Diploma is recognized internationally and leads to advanced standing in universities throughout the world. The curriculum framework includes seven required courses, community service projects, and a 4,000 word research paper. Candidates who successfully pass the IB assessments may earn up to 45 hours of college credit. In addition, students who receive the prestigious IB Diploma are welcomed by leading universities around the world while also qualifying for the highest level of the Florida Bright Futures tuition scholarship.
