What do our graduates say about their IB experience?

"The International Baccalaureate Programme is all about thinking in new ways. We focus on the “how’s” and “why’s” of events that have impacted the world.  We are taught to learn and think together with the world, rather than just simply studying it."


Adam Jones

IB Diploma Graduate – 2014

Thomas Jefferson Scholar

University of Virginia, Class of 2018

"Once I viewed CAS (Creativity, Action & Service) and EE (Extended Essay) as things I 'get' to do, instead of things I 'had' to do, they become two of the most meaningful parts of the diploma program. St. Ed's and the IB gave me the opportunity to make a difference in the community and to research topics  I was passionate about."


Jonathan Unger

4 time National Latin Examination Gold Medalist

University of Notre Dame, class of 2018



"Above everything, the IB program was what defined my high school experience. Whether it was looking through different perspectives, getting hands on experience, or studying something I was truly passionate about, the IB program kept my interest as a busy high school student.  The most important thing the program did for me was prepare me for my college experience.  Going to a place as international as UCLA, the global education helped me with all aspects of life on campus. By completing the program I was on track to a well-rounded and international education."

What do Universities view the IB Diploma Programme? 

"One of the advantages of an IB curriculum is its structure and quality. It is a coordinated program, well established, well known and well respected. We know the quality of IB courses, and we think the IB curriculum is terrific."
