International Baccalaureate

 Association International School is an IB World School offering the IB Diploma Programme in Ghana. IB World Schools share a common philosophy – a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Association International School believes is important for our students.

Our 11th and 12th graders will have the opportunity to graduate with an IB High School Diploma. The IB Diploma Programme (DP) is an academically challenging and balanced programme of education with final examinations that prepare students, aged 16 to 19, for success at university and life beyond. It has been designed to address the intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being of students.

 As our school continues to grow, we keep adding to its repertoire of courses. In addition to SAT/AP/ACT Prep, Association International School in 2015 took the decision to apply to become an IB World school offering the IB Diploma programme. We have worked hard on our IB curriculum, infrastructure as well as policies and handbooks to ensure that your child will have the best academic experience pursuing the IB Diploma programme with us.

 

The International Baccalaureate® IB Diploma Programme (DP) is for students    aged 16-19.

The DP curriculum

  • Creativity, Activity, Service, in which students complete a project related to those three concepts.
