The Baccalaureate School for Global Education provides a world-class educational experience aligned with the frameworks and standards of the International Baccalaureate Program. We expect all students who successfully complete our course of study to be prepared for the International Baccalaureate diploma. The International Baccalaureate Program is a rigorous college preparatory course of study that meets the needs of highly motivated secondary school students. The IB diploma allows graduates to fulfill requirements of national education systems worldwide, incorporating the best elements of each. Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization are eligible to issue IB certificates or diplomas. As a new school, the Baccalaureate School for Global Education is not yet accredited by IBO, but in consultation with International Baccalaureate North America (IBNA) we have begun the implementation phase of the Middle Years Program.
