IB World Schools offer a recognized diploma that offers entrance into top universities around the globe.  We selected and perused our candidacy with the organization because we see connection between our individual missions. For this reason, we will proudly accept applications to our inaugural IB Diploma cohort for August 2020 following our authorization visit in spring of 2020.

Middle Years Program 

As a candidate school, we are proud to be able to offer the Middle Years Program (IB MYP) which is the preparation curriculum for the IB Diploma Program.  We began to accept students into this coursework for their first years of high school/Lycee in 2018.  Once students are ages 14-15, they are laying the foundation for their university and professional lives and as such we wish to provide them the opportunity to prepare for their university studies from their first days in high school.
