IB Diploma Programme or IB Career‐Related Programme
Proviso Township High Schools District 209 is proud to offer two International Baccalaureate programs of study to our scholars at Proviso East, Proviso West, and PMSA. All three high schools are authorized for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (DP) and International Baccalaureate Certificate Programme. Proviso West is also authorized for the Career-related Programme (CP).
Students who participate in the IB program at Proviso learn critical thinking skills, giving them a solid educational foundation as they begin their adult lives. The IB Programme also provides students with opportunities to earn college credit while in high school, similar to Advanced Placement (AP) courses. The difference is that DP students are eligible to earn an internationally recognized high school diploma representing a global, rigorous course of study across continents.
Many students from the Math and Science Academy program choose the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme as a natural progression of their studies. IB is open to ALL students. However, Proviso is committed to providing Equity, Excellence, and Relevance for ALL. The IB program gives our scholars an excellent opportunity to be Nothing But the Best!
Students must apply for the IB Programme at their school during their sophomore year. Further information will be provided here.
