Graduation Pathways

Home / Secondary / Graduation Pathways

IGBIS is extremely proud of the number of graduation pathways we are able to offer our Grade 11 and 12 students as students in their final two years of study can choose from three major programmes: the IBDP, IBCP or the High School Diploma (HSD). This creates four distinct pathways including the full CP, full DP, DP courses and/or the HSD (Please see the diagram below for more info). Programme selection is based on a variety of factors, including the future aspirations of the students, field of study, current interests and the target country of further study.

The IB Diploma Programme

Established in 1968 for students aged 16-19, the IB Diploma Programme (DP)  is an internationally recognised academic programme designed to meet the needs of motivated high school students, providing them with a balanced education, facilitating geographic and cultural mobility, while promoting international understanding. A comprehensive two-year programme that enables students to fulfil the requirements of various national education systems around the world, the IBDP’s curriculum model incorporates the best elements of several national assessment systems. 

Students select six courses that they study for two years while also completing a compulsory core (see the diagram above). Each course lasts two years from Grade 11 to 12 and in May of the Grade 12 year, the students sit for the IBDP standardised, external examinations.

The CP provides students with an excellent foundation to support their further post-secondary studies, as well as ensure their preparedness for success in the workforce. The CP at IGBIS combines highly regarded and internationally recognised IB Diploma Programme (DP) courses with university-level courses and a unique CP core.
