Nease International Baccalaureate Program

Nease offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program, which is chartered by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) in Geneva, Switzerland.  IB is a very rigorous, two-year program of curriculum and service that meets the needs of highly motivated secondary students during their last two years of high school, by providing a comprehensive and integrated approach to learning.  In addition, students take intensified courses in Grades 9 and 10 in English, foreign language, social studies, science, and mathematics, called Nease Pre-IB, in preparation for the rigorous college-level curriculum of the Grades 11-12 IB Diploma Program.

The primary objective of the IB Program is to provide a world-class education that prepares students with the intellectual, social, and critical perspectives necessary for college and the rest of their lives. The IB curriculum emphasizes and promotes a persistent curiosity, critical analysis and creative synthesis in a broad range of subject areas.  Students earn a full IB Diploma by passing internationally set and graded exams along with internal assessments in six subjects, and in addition, completing an original research requirement (Extended Essay), completing the Theory of Knowledge course, and fulfilling the creativity, activity and service component (CAS).  For more detailed information on IB see:
