Benefits of Receiving the IB Diploma

Receiving the IB Diploma is not only a successful measure of completing a program of academic rigor, challenge, and motivation, but also helps to prepare students for a life long learning experience in our increasingly global society. Additionally, colleges and universities see the program as a rigorous college preparatory program that expands students' understanding of international affairs. IB students are desirable candidates for college admission as the following data demonstrates. The data speaks for itself. The first percentage is the percent of total applicants admitted to a specific college and the second percentage represents the number of students admitted who have IB diplomas or have taken IB courses for a certificate.
