International Baccalaureate

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.

Academics are the first priority of the IB Program, but we also stress the education of the whole child, which includes an emphasis to get out of the classroom and into the community."
