Will you be entering the Pre-IB (Grade 9) or IB (Grade 11) programme this September?

If you said “yes,” then sign up for our exciting NEW summer International Baccalaureate (IB) Transition workshops with a certified IB expert!

According to the IBO, the IB programme can lead students “to some of the highest-ranking universities around the world,” and students accepted to this challenging and well-respected programme are “encouraged to think critically and solve complex problems,” “drive their own learning,” and to be “able to engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world.”

Our IB Transition workshops are designed to prepare students for these new demands, as well as to help them understand the formal requirements and evaluation structure of the programme, so they can make a successful transition into either the Pre-IB (Grade 9)* or the IB programme (Grade 11).*
