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).
