International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme 

We are excited to announce that Aberfoyle Park High School’s application for candidacy for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme has been approved. 

Aberfoyle Park High School is a candidate school* for the Diploma Programme. We are pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy: a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education that we believe is important for our students. 

* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP).
