The Globally Renowned International Baccalaureate Diploma Program at BISC

This program of study leads to a highly-regarded qualification that is widely recognized by the world’s leading universities.

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program is a challenging two-year course of study that prepares students for success in higher education and life in a global society. This program of study leads to a highly-regarded qualification that is widely recognized by the world’s leading universities.

Students study 6 subjects; 3 at higher level and 3 at standard level, from the following groups:

  • A literature-based language course

  • A conversational-based second language course

  • A social science

  • A physical/biological science

  • A math course

  • An elective course

Students must also complete 3 core requirements:

  1. Extended Essay: The Extended Essay has a prescribed limit of 4,000 words. It offers the opportunity to investigate a topic of individual interest, and acquaints students with the independent research and writing skills expected at university.

  2. Theory of Knowledge (TOK): The interdisciplinary TOK course is designed to provide coherence by exploring the nature of knowledge across disciplines, encouraging an appreciation of other cultural perspectives.

  3. Creativity, Action, Service (CAS): Participation in the school’s CAS program encourages students to be involved in artistic pursuits, sports and community service, to foster awareness and appreciation of life outside the academic arena.

The impact of being part of an international school

The IB Diploma Program encourages students to ask challenging questions, learn how to learn, develop a strong sense of their own identity and culture, and develop the ability to communicate with and understand people from other countries and cultures.  With over 60 different nationalities, an experienced international staff, a global network of peers, and highly personalized learning, the British School of Charlotte is an ideal choice for students interested in the IB Diploma.

Global networking and enhancement opportunities

As a Nord Anglia Education school, we are part of a global family of schools across the US, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.  Belonging to the network opens up unique opportunities for our students to work on international projects and collaborate with peers around the world.

What do our students say?

“The IB courses are very demanding. However, having small classes means that my learning is focused on what I need and I really enjoy the challenge”

“Teachers use lots of different teaching approaches including group work, discussion, practical work and I really enjoy the mixture of learning methods”

“I feel well prepared for college”

Preparing for university and college admissions

We have a college counselor who works with the students throughout years 12 and 13 to prepare them thoroughly for entry in to universities and colleges throughout the world.  Our college counselor has extensive knowledge of the entry requirements and procedures for private and public US and Canadian schools and the different requirements of the UK and European universities.
