The purpose of the PreBaccalaureate Program is to prepare students for the IB Diploma Program and ease the transition between grade 10 and grade 11. It is an accelerated program of study that covers more material more quickly than our Academic pathway. The purpose is to emphasize the pace of study and focus on writing and thinking skills necessary for success in the IB Diploma Programme. PreBac teachers work with IB teachers to create grade 9 and grade 10 courses that have additional learning and IB-related tasks. No IB assessments are done in Grades 9-10, but students are introduced to them by way of mini-assignments, labs, experiments, essays, etc.
