Starting September 2016, Aquinas American School will be offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) to our 11th graders.
The IBDP, created in Geneva in 1968, is a rigorous and demanding two year academic program which will open the doors of the most prestigious universities to our students.
The International Baccalaureate is fully approved by the Spanish Ministry of Education ensuring access to Spanish universities, both public and private, in the same conditions as students taking the Spanish Baccalaureate. Furthermore, it significantly facilitates the access to the International university system. IBDP is now approved in 52 countries, including Great Britain and the United States.
The curriculum of the IBDP at AAS includes six subjects chosen from five different groups, together with three core requirements: Theory of Knowledge (ToK), CAS hours and an Extended Essay.
