The focus of the IB Diploma Program aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better world through intercultural understanding and respect. The IB Diploma promotes lifelong learning by requiring students to develop the attributes of the IB Learner Profile.
While it is the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) that prescribes the curriculum, AOSR has carefully and successfully implemented the IBDP for decades. AOSR IB students have historically gained admission to prestigious universities in the United States, Europe, and throughout the world. Because of its equipollenza with the Italian "Maturità," AOSR students also gain acceptance to top Italian universities.
To earn an IB Diploma at AOSR, students take six core subjects, follow a course in the Theory of Knowledge, submit an Extended Essay, and participate in Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS) Programs. Finally, students sit for six exams in the core subjects at the end of Grade 12.
