International Baccalaureate Programme (IB)

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme:

  • develops “internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world” (From the IB Learner Profile)
  • encourages students to participate in creative and service-oriented activities, while reflecting on a personal and academic level

The IB Diploma Programme provides students an opportunity to:

  • use Grades 11 and 12 for intensive university preparation
  • receive a year’s worth of academic credit upon entry to the University of Calgary (for IB Diploma students)

Frequently asked questions and answers about IB

IB Registration

Grade 9 students interested in registering the IB Programme must submit all parts of their completed registration to their designated IB school by January 15, 2017.

Designated CBE IB high schools

In 2017, the CBE changed from five geographic Areas to seven administrative Areas. 

Note | Because school registration for 2017 - 2018 was already in process, designated high schools for IB continue to be based on the five geographic  Areas.  

Students registering the IB Programme in English attend their designated IB school based on the Areas in which they reside. Please see the table below for details about designated schools offering IB in French.

To confirm your designated IB school, call 403-817-4000, use the interactive Find a School on our website, or check the map of CBE high schools: previous five geographic Areas​.
