The IB Diploma identifies a student as one who has accepted the challenge, engaged it, and succeeded based upon an international standard. Central to the International Baccalaureate Programme is the ‘Learner Profile’, which provides a long-term vision of education.
Success in the IB Programme requires ability, self-motivation, organization, commitment, and interest. Students must be able to balance academic responsibilities with participation in extracurricular activities, and community service.
At Sir Wilfrid Laurier C.I., the IB students have numerous opportunities to develop and enhance the characteristics that comprise the IB Learner Profile through meeting the challenges of the rigorous academic program, fulfilling the requirements of the IB Core Components (CAS, EE, and TOK) and participating in numerous leadership, artistic and athletic initiatives.
