IThe International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme is a two year comprehensive and rigorous academic program for academically ambitious students in Grades 11 and 12. The programme originated in Europe in 1968 and was intended to establish a common curriculum and university entry credential for students moving from one country to another. There are currently over 3900 schools in over 141 countries which offer the IB Diploma Programme and Prince Andrew High School, with the support of the Halifax Regional School Board and the Department of Education, was IB authorized in Spring 2007.   

Operating now for over thirty years, the IB Diploma programme has earned a reputation for rigorous assessment and is highly regarded at universities all over the world.  The comprehensive programme emphasizes academic excellence, as well as personal development and community service.  Students who choose to take the IB Diploma Programme receive outstanding preparation for further academic studies. Successful completion of the programme allows students to be considered for admission to colleges and universities worldwide. However, it is important to remember that the goals of the IB Diploma Programme go beyond academic preparation. Values which permeate the curriculum, including literacy, internationalism, critical thinking, tolerance, and citizenship, give the programme its special character and depth.     Click here for more information about IB @ PA!
