AIS is in the Candidacy phase with IB to bring on the IB Career-related Programme. Beginning in the 2024/25 school year, AIS hopes to offer the innovative International Baccalaureate (IB) Career-related Program (CP) to students entering Grades 11 and 12. The CP is an internationally recognized framework that incorporates the IB philosophy and rigor into a unique program that allows students to follow a more career-related educational pathway.
This is an exciting curricular IB diploma option for students to earn through their final two years of high school. The IBCP diploma is recognized nationally in the US and also internationally by colleges and universities.
The CP is a pathway to some of the best universities and careers; creating lifelong learners and well-rounded individuals, ready to make a positive impact on the world.
The CP is a comprehensive program that includes a minimum of two IB Diploma Program (DP) courses, a career-related study, and the unique, CP Core. This holistic approach is a brilliant preparation for further education, apprenticeships, or employment - fostering critical thinking, applied knowledge, cross-cultural engagement, and effective communication skills.
Success in the CP assessments can also lead to students earning valuable credits at US colleges and universities.
All students have a curricular requirement to regularly give back to the community throughout their last two years in High School at AIS.
No prior language experience is needed before students join the IB Diploma Program or the Career-Related Programme. Language options exist for students of all experience levels, from beginners to bilingual students.
Divider blueThe IBDP or IBCP is awarded at the end of the second year based on students’ performance on written examinations (judged by external examiners).
The IB Diploma and Career-Related Programmes are highly valued by colleges and universities all around the world, by employers and by DP students themselves. Our IB graduates consistently enjoy higher acceptance rates at top universities and frequently tell us how well prepared they feel for college.
