If you have a child enrolled in an International Baccalaureate program in Canada, some courses are recognised as equivalent to university courses. Universities in Canada and the US may award first year credit for courses in the program.

In the United States, many senior credits in the International Baccalaureate program are accepted as equal to first year college courses.

Our Kids also offers listings of several European private schools with an International Baccalaureate program.

International Baccalaureate Programs curriculum

The IB program curriculum consists of study in six subject areas, an essay of up to 4,000 words and at least 50 hours in each area of Creative, Action and Service requirements. Theory of Knowledge is one other important component of the IB curriculum.
