Country Day students excel on multiple, rigorous academic paths on their way to becoming fully prepared for college.
Country Day is proud to be the first private school in North Carolina to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program. Our small class sizes, dedicated faculty, and wide array of school resources are essential to successfully developing the intellectual and personal skills that the IB Diploma Program promises for students.
The IB Diploma Program is a two-year course of study for juniors and seniors. It includes a rigorous, well-rounded curriculum, promotes international mindedness, develops research, writing, and thinking skills, and emphasizes reflection and growth. The IB Diploma Program is best suited to students who think critically, desire rigorous academics, and are committed to stretching themselves inside and outside the classroom. Students who successfully complete the IB Diploma program are very well prepared for college and have the opportunity to earn the internationally recognized IB Diploma in addition to their Country Day diploma.
Our small class sizes, dedicated faculty, and wide array of school resources are essential to successfully developing the intellectual and personal skills that the IB Diploma Program promises for students.
Theory of Knowledge (TOK) is a required course in the International Baccalaureate Diploma program that asks students to question and reflect upon the process of acquiring knowledge and how they know what they know. It’s a little bit of theory and a whole lot of fun.
