The International Baccalaureate (IB), and the Diploma Programme (DP) in particular, enjoys a high level of respect and recognition among the world's higher education institutions. For student, success in the IB often results in advanced standing, course credit, scholarships, and other admissions related at many universities.
International Baccalaureate (IB) at SJVA
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) aims to do more than other curricula by developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who are motivated to succeed.
We hope our students will help to build a better world through intercultural understanding and respect.
The IB is different from other curricula because it:
- encourages students to think critically and challenge what they are told
- is independent of governments and national systems, and therefore able to incorporate best practice from a range of international frameworks and curricula
- encourages students to consider both their local and international environment.
SJVA teachers and administration would like to thank and encourage all students participating in the IB program.
Your hard work and dedication is appreciated!
