International Baccalaureate (IB)
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme is a set of challenging pre-college courses that prepare juniors and seniors for IB exams to earn college credits. Students can pursue an IB Diploma, which includes IB courses from six different subject areas. Students can also choose to earn an IB certificate which allows students to select IB courses that match their strengths and interests.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme is offered at Central, Harding and Highland Park. International Baccalaureate Diploma or course exams are accepted for college credit at many universities. See individual high school websites for more specific information.
