The York School offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme as the final two years of Senior School study.
The IB Diploma provides an internationally recognized, highly prestigious and well-balanced education for our students.
Recognized globally as the gold standard in education, the Diploma prepares our students for the intellectual rigour of university study by teaching them the oral, writing, research and analytical skills necessary for success.
Of course, world-class education is about more than just academics. A core requirement of the Diploma is the CAS programme (Creativity, Action, Service), which encourages students to be involved in artistic and athletic pursuits, as well as community service work. Our students participate enthusiastically, while developing an awareness and appreciation of life outside the academic arena.
The IB Diploma is the ultimate passport. It prepares our students for the best post-secondary institutions in the world, while giving them the confidence that they have what it takes to achieve success.
