Diploma Program

About the Program

The International Baccalaureate is a non-profit organization founded in Geneva in 1968 with the mission of providing balanced and rigorous educational curriculum for students aged 3 to 19 in three different programs: the Primary Years Program (PYP); the Middle Years Program (MYP); and the Diploma Program (DP).

At Hill-Freedman, we offer the DP in grades 11 and 12. The DP is a pre-university course of studies, requiring coursework, orals and examinations. The DP is an academically challenging and balanced program of education; it addresses the intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being of students; and it is respected by universities across the globe.

Hill-Freedman supports the commitment of the IB in the development of students according to the attributes outlined in their IB learner profile. The profile aims to develop learners who are:

● inquirers ● knowledgeable ● thinkers ● communicators ● principled ● open-minded ● caring ● risk-takers ● balanced ● reflective
