Hillel Academy welcomes you to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme!

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and Courses (IBDP) provide a two-year programme of study for our 16-19 year olds which helps us to develop our students’ academic, physical, emotional and ethical awareness and abilities further in preparation for further study and the world of employment.

The International Baccalaureate Organization writes:

Education is an act of hope in the face of an always-uncertain future. An IB education calls forth the very best in students and educators alike. The IB believes that together we can help to prepare students for living and working in a complex, highly interconnected world.

The essence of an IB education, what a rewarding and invaluable gift to your child! This rigourous international curriculum renowned as the premier college preparation programme certainly prepares students for succes in higher education and the world of employment. It challenges students to take ownership of their learning and encourages each individual to explore with an open mind and authentic inquiry, subjects that fit their interests and skills. From effective instruction and engaging lessons that help students become sound global citizens, to local and international involvement through Creativity, Activity and Service initiatives, an IB education affords students a quality educational experience that develops the whole child as well - rounded lifelong learners equipped to take on their individual path beyond high school.

It gives me great pleasure to lead a programme in which approaches to teaching and learning beckon inclusion, deepen intellectual curiosity and end with students determined and committed to realize their own potential. Please free to contact me, Pauladene Steele, the IBDP Coordinator. We look forward to partnering with you and providing access to all the benefits of the IB journey here at Hillel Academy.
