    The International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme

    The International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme is a course of study in which students have the opportunity to take classes that emphasize research skills, internationalism, critical thinking, the application of knowledge, intercultural understanding, and interdisciplinary learning. The IB Programme underscores the importance of the development of a well-rounded student.

    Students in the IB Diploma Programme Take Courses in Six Subject Groups Including:

    • Group 1. Language A1 (English)
    • Group 2. Second Language
    • Group 3. Individuals and Societies (Social Studies)
    • Group 4. Experimental Sciences
    • Group 5. Mathematics
    • Group 6. The Arts and Electives

    IB Diploma students also complete unique components, which include a Theory of Knowledge course, an extended essay, and CAS – Creativity, Action, and Service.

    The Diploma Programme is offered during the last two years of high school (11th and 12th grade) and serves as a bridge to prepare students as they leave high school and enter higher education.

    IB Diploma students take one course from each of the subject groups and complete the other unique components of the IB Programme.

    Students are REQUIRED to complete all of the prescribed IB assessments for the IB courses they are taking.

    About College Credit Plus

    College Credit Plus is a program that gives high school students an opportunity to be enrolled in both high school and college coursework at the same time. College Credit Plus replaces Ohio’s Post-Secondary Enrollment Options program (PSEO) and all dual enrollment programs. Students must meet the admission requirements set forth by the university. Dublin City Schools will bear all tuition costs.

    Students eligible for College Credit Plus must be academically ready for college level courses and be willing to follow the procedures outlined by the university while still in high school. Dublin City Schools has partnered with Columbus State Community College (CSCC), The Ohio State University (OSU), and Kenyon College. College Credit Plus courses are offered on the campuses of CSCC and OSU and at our Dublin high schools depending upon enrollment and availability of instructors.

    Dublin City Schools College Center

    The Dublin City Schools College Center is designed to support and inform parents and students in the navigation of post-secondary options. In a collaborative effort, the three Dublin City Schools guidance departments created a resource page to support our school community. Our mission is to provide a comprehensive and educational site to aid in your child’s journey to success after high school.
