IB Diploma students can participate in the Senior Transition Schedule

You no longer have to choose between pursuing the IB Diploma and being able to leave school early. Click the example schedule below for more details.


 

Simple Answer: Each university has its own policy for how many credits you can earn through passing an IB exam. You should always contact an admission counselor at your school of choice before assuming that you will receive credit for a passing score. But for now, you can check out the list below for a summary of credits given by the universities that Carmel High School students attend most often.


 

Join our #IBFam

Pursuing an IB Diploma certainly yields tremendous academic benefits. But perhaps the most unique aspect of the IB Diploma route is the "IB Family" environment. Students pursuing the diploma are together in almost every class and as a result are part of a supportive learning community.


 

What is the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program?

The IB diploma programme consists of six courses over the junior and senior year of high school--three taken at high level(HL) and three taken at standard level (SL). THEORY OF KNOWLEDGE: All IB Diploma students take a class called Theory of Knowledge (TOK), which explores the various ways of knowing. EXTENDED ESSAY: Students also have the opportunity to write an Extended Essay (EE) during their junior and/or senior year about a topic that genuinely interests them. CAS HOURS: IB Diploma students are also expected to work to make their communities a better place. This component of the program, called Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS), is designed to provide students with opportunities to become more well-rounded and balanced adults.
