International Student Exchanges

IB students who are interested in student exchange programs must be cautious of WHEN they embark on the exchange.  The Full Diploma program must be completed in two years, so Full Diploma students need to consider exchanges in grades 9 or 10 OR in the summers.  Grade 11 and 12 Full Diploma students MAY NOT miss the class time due to an exchange.  Here is a Board approved program to check out if you are interested in an exhange: ISE Ontario International Student Exchange

Notice to all parents regarding Fee Receipts:  IB Fees can not be used for tax purposes. See the information provided under “For Parents” regarding Canada Revenue.

OVERVIEW OF THE IB PROGRAMME

The IB programme allows students to explore their personal and academic interests via the International Baccalaureate model. Depending on their post-secondary aspirations and learning goals, students have the option of completing individual IB courses or completing the full IB Diploma. Both program options are valuable and should be chosen based on individual student needs.  Please explore our “About”, “For Parents” and “IB Curriculum Summaries” Pages for a more detailed explanation of student options.
