Is your student interested in attending an internationally recognized university preparation program offered right here in Newfoundland and Labrador?
On Tuesday, February 4th, the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District will host an information session for parents/guardians of current Grade 9 students interested in learning more about the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program. The meeting will take place at 7:00 p.m. at the District Conference Centre on 40 Strawberry Marsh Road in St. John’s. Families will be able to access further details on the program, ask questions of District staff, and evaluate whether the IB Program could be of benefit to their young adult. For those unable to attend in person, this session will also be live broadcast via Skype. Please check with your high school administration anywhere in the province for link access.
The IB Program aims to educate students through comprehensive curriculum to become creative, critical thinkers, effective communicators, and globally-aware citizens. The IB Diploma program is presented with close consideration of complying with provincial diploma requirements as a challenging alternative for those who seek to expand their educational horizons. The Program offers high quality international education to a worldwide community of schools and is recognized as such by post-secondary institutions. There are more than 900,000 IB students in over 140 countries.
The IB Program is provincially sponsored by the District and any student in the province may apply to attend. The District's IB Program is hosted at Holy Heart of Mary High School in St. John’s and students who enroll are required to attend in person at that school.

For families who may be interested, current Grade 9 students should apply by Tuesday, February 18th, 2020 for consideration into the IB Program for a September, 2020 start.
