<b>Diploma Program Overview</b>

Students enrolled in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program study three of the five core subject areas (English, Social Studies, Math, Science, or World Language) at the IB Higher Level over two years, 11th and 12th grades combined. Students also study two other of the core areas (English, Social Studies, Math, Science, or World Language) at the IB Standard Level.   Standard Level is still college level curriculum and receives a quality point for GPA computation purposes.  These two SL courses are typically one year only course offerings in either junior or senior year.  Students also se­lect one additional IB Sixth Subject to study at the Standard Level—this is typically completed in the twelfth grade. This sixth subject may be an IB fine arts course, another science, or another social science IB offering. Requirements for the IB Diploma also include a seventh class called IB Theory of Knowledge (taken in combination with graduation requirements of Government and Economics of the two years in the program, 11th and 12th grades combined). Students must also complete an Extended Essay, and document the required number of CAS hours. Successful candidates may earn the IB Diploma in addition to the State of Georgia high school diploma.
