- 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)
