International Baccalaureate at George School

George School is one of a few US boarding schools offering the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program. It is an extraordinary and challenging two-year curriculum in your junior and senior years. The Diploma Program structures and balances rigorous academic work with requirements that push you outside the classroom into community service, creativity, and physical activity. It will get you ready for college here in the States or for universities around the world.

All of us take some IB classes here, but the full Diploma Program is not everyone’s cup of tea. Some challenge-seeking students take one or several IB classes in their favorite subjects. And whether you take just a single class, earn a subject-specific IB Certificate, or work through the full two-year program towards the IB Diploma, you’ll think deeply and critically. 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.

Read more details about the IB Program at the official IB website or contact George School IB Coordinator Ralph Lelii at rlelii@georgeschool.org with any questions.
