The Secondary Section consists has two International Baccalaureate programmes – Middle Years Programme (MYP) from Grades 6 to 10, and the Diploma for Grades 11 and 12.
We combine a rigorous academic curriculum with a wide selection of activities that are aimed at challenging and motivating the young adult. Students in Grades 6 to 10 study subjects in eight curriculum areas. Providing students with such a broad and balanced educational program and making connections between these subjects is a integral part of the MYP and re-enforces the IB learner profile as well as provides a solid foundation for Grades 11 and 12
Students entering Grade 11 are given the option of enrolling in either the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme or the High School Diploma Programme. The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP)is a rigorous two year pre-university course of studies which leads to examinations that meet the needs of highly motivated students between the ages of 16 and 19 years. Designed as a comprehensive two-year curriculum, it allows its' graduates to fulfill the requirements of various national education systems and is highly respected by world class post-secondary institutions.

The High School Diploma Program (HSD) offers students in grade 11 the opportunity to study NEASC (New England Association of Schools and Colleges) approved HSD courses and IBDP courses. The HSD is aimed at students who require an alternative to the IBDP program and therefore offers a variety of one year courses plus the opportunity to take several two-year IBDP courses and obtain an IBDP Certificate.
