What is the International Baccalaureate (IB)?

The IB is a worldwide network of schools committed to creating a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. Students in IB programs think critically, ask challenging questions, and consider both local and global contexts.

Why Immersion?

Immersion is so much more than learning a language. Learn about the long-term benefits of an immersion education in this inspirational video from our friends at The French American Academy (formerly The French Academy of Bilingual Culture).
