The Diploma Program provides a rigorous course of study for students in grades 11 and 12. Students study six subjects chosen from the school’s offerings, as well as three core requirements that are designed to challenge and to broaden the academic experience. Theory of Knowledge, the Extended Essay and CAS (creativity, activity, service) provide the core of the program. All together, the DP provides a balanced approach to preparing students for college.
