Students participating in the IB Diploma Programme or IB Career‐related Programme are eligible to earn an International Baccalaureate Diploma or International Baccalaureate Career‐related Certificate, respectively. The IB learner profile describes a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond academic success. The IB Programmes take place over the final two years of a student's high school career (11th and 12th grades). Students who obtain high scores on the IB exams may be granted college credit from their selected colleges or universities. Students must apply for the IB Programmes.
