Diploma Programme

The IB Diploma Programme (DP) is a two-year academically challenging, rigorous and balanced programme of education.

The DP's final examinations prepare our students aged 16 to 19 (Grade 11 and 12) for success at university and life #beyondraha.

Why the Diploma Programme?

The DP prepares students for effective participation in a rapidly evolving and increasingly global society as they:

  • Develop physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically
  • Acquire breadth and depth of knowledge and understanding, studying courses from 6 subject groups
  • Develop the skills and a positive attitude toward learning that will prepare them for higher education
  • Study at least two languages and increase the understanding of cultures, including their own
  • Make connections across traditional academic disciplines and explore the nature of knowledge through the programme’s unique theory of knowledge course
  • Undertake in-depth research into an area of interest through the lens of one or more academic disciplines in the extended essay
  • Enhance their personal and interpersonal development through creativity, action and service
