International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme

The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation, motivated by its mission and focused on the student.  It was founded in 1968 and is currently working with 2,795 schools in 143 countries to develop and offer their Diploma Programme.

The Diploma Programme is for classes 11 and 12, students aged 16 to 19, that works to develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills that facilitate and guide the individual to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalising world.

IB Mission Statement

The International Baccalaureate Organization aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the IBO works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right (International Baccalaureate Organization, 2015).
