What is the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP)?

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is a two-year educational Programme primarily serving students 15 to 18 years old. The Programme provides an internationally accepted qualification for entry into higher education and is recognized by colleges and universities worldwide.

In the OCDSB, students engage in the OCDSB’s pre-IBDP during grades 9 and 10 to prepare them for the challenge of the two-year Diploma Programme in grades 11 and 12. Upon successful completion, a student is expected to attain both the IB Diploma and the Ontario Secondary School Diploma.
