HIGH SCHOOL

High School, which spans Years 10–13 (Grades 9–12), is all about carving each student's unique areas of interest and specialties. Our students focus on IGCSEs during their first two years. In their final two years, they get ready to create their futures through the most rigorous and highly respected International Baccalaureate courses — finishing with an impressive capstone on their High School years, in excellent preparation for top universities worldwide.

THE INTERNATIONAL GENERAL CERTIFICATE OF SECONDARY EDUCATION (IGCSE)
We’re proud to be the only High School in Boston to offer the globally respected IGCSE curriculum as a two-year program to study ten subjects in great depth. Students select from English, math, and science options, plus exciting electives like art, business, computer science, French, Spanish, drama, geography, music, and physical education. They take their examinations at the end of Year 11 (Grade 10). This approach provides the time to establish a solid foundation that well prepares them to progress through IB Diploma Programme.

The IB Diploma is recognized around the world as the highest-level achievement that students can attain before their college studies, in Years 12 and 13 (Grades 11 and 12). This rigorous curriculum focuses on six subject areas and a core group, and it leads highly selective universities worldwide to accept our students. The six subjects span language, literature, individuals and societies, sciences, math, and the arts. The core includes service, an extended essay of research, and a critical thinking course.
