International Baccalaureate at George School

George School is one of a few US boarding schools offering the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program, an extraordinary and challenging two-year curriculum that prepares students for college anywhere around the world. The IB Program structures and balances rigorous academic work with requirements that push students outside the classroom into community service, creativity, and physical activity.

As a George School student, you may choose to take one or several IB classes in your favorite subjects, earn a subject-specific IB Certificate, or work through the full two-year program towards the IB Diploma. And since many colleges and universities give you credit for IB courses, you’ll have some of your prerequisites out of the way, giving you time and energy to delve deeper into electives while you are there.
