Diploma Programme

What is the DP?

The IB Diploma Programme, serving students in grades 11-12, aims to educate the whole student and build a small, tight-knit community of learners on our large campus.

Our programme is built off concept-based curricula driven by student inquiry. It is geared toward the student who wants to tae control of their education and set their self up for success in high school and beyond.

The community service component of the IB programme, known as CAS, is an opportunity for students to pursue their own personal interests, explore new interests, and dedicate time and energy to worthwhile projects. It is an opportunity for students to critically reflect on their contributions and learning. Key to the programme is personal engagement, choice, and equally important: an enjoyment of the CAS experience.
