Learn About International Baccalaureate at December 8 Information Night

International Baccalaureate Info Night flyerInternational Baccalaureate (IB) is a Grade 11/12 university preparation program recognized in over 140 countries, including universities in Ontario and Canada.

Students concurrently study up to six challenging subjects that instill a global perspective with cross-cultural understanding. IB students learn through inquiry, and gain a sense of social responsibility, independence and critical-thinking skills vital to university studies.

IB students can apply for university credit, based on their results in IB examinations. Located at Ancaster High School and Westdale Secondary School, graduates gain both the Ontario Secondary School Diploma and an IB Diploma.

Students and families are invited to learn more about the IB program at our upcoming information night.
