The Diploma Programme (DP) of the International Baccalaureate (IB) is a prestigious programme recognised worldwide that ensures pupils are adaptable and mobile by encouraging them to be active, creative and of service to the community.
The benefits of the International Baccalaureate are many as the programme gives students a solid training and excellent preparation, allowing them to develop their personal capacities and focus on their futures.
Skills for international career development
The IB Diploma Programme is recognised by top universities worldwide. In addition, studies indicate that a higher proportion of DP students make it into university than those who do not study it.
The programme allows students to develop unique and vital skills for when they are seeking an international career. Throughout the International Baccalaureate pupils acquire a cultural awareness, fluency in a foreign language, independent thought, in-depth analysis, teamwork and social commitment. All this makes sure they are able to communicate effectively with people from other countries and cultures with respect and tolerance.
IB boosts their sense of identity and awareness of their own culture and those of others, fostering the development and respect for human values while stimulating their curiosity and eagerness to look into things and discover. They get pleasure out of learning and applying their knowledge in a wider range of fields.
In addition to the Diploma Programme (DP), Agora Sant Cugat International School is an authorised school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the Middle Years Programme (MYP), becoming a continuum IB World School and expanding the number of academic IB programmes to the rest of the formative stages installing the values of the IB World Schools from the very beginning of the educational journey. The IB has a common philosophy based on the commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners.
