  • I'm interested in doing the IB Diploma Programme. What do I need to do to get ready?

    Posted by Jon Sherwin on 8/2/2021

    Students in grades 11 and 12 may select to participate in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Beyond intellectual rigor, strong emphasis is placed on the ideals of international understanding, responsible citizenship and service.

    To prepare for the IB Diploma Programme, students in grades 9 and 10 should...

    • Take as many honors level classes as they are comfortable with
    • Maintain an unweighted GPA of 3.5 in their core classes
    • Complete the following NC Graduation requirements by the end of grade 10:
      • English I and II
      • NC Math 1, 2 and 3
      • Civic Literacy and Economics & Personal Finance
      • Earth Science and Biology (If a student is interested in taking IB Chemistry or IB Physics at the Higher Level, they should also complete the honors level course of that subject by the end of grade 10)

  • Which advanced level courses are right for me?

    Posted by Jennifer Ciaccio on 6/1/2021

    Your choice of courses during your Junior and Senior years largely depends on your post high school plans. The goal in high school is to learn as much as possible to be prepared for the next stage in your life. While choosing one program over another may not dramatically impact your future, cultivating a strong academic record will.
