IB DIPLOMA PROGRAMME (Grade 11 and 12)

The Canadian School of Milan is committed to offering the best educational programmes. CSM is an official IB world school authorised to offer the IB Diploma Programme and the  Middle Years Programme.

The Canadian School of Milan offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme as the final two years of Upper School. The IB Diploma provides an internationally recognised, highly prestigious and well-balanced education for our students.

The International Baccalaureate programme is recognised globally as the gold standard in education. The IB Diploma prepares our students for the intellectual rigour of university study by teaching them skills necessary for success.

The IB Diploma Programme is a broad base two year course, requiring study in six subject areas, including a study of Literature in a (near)native language, a modern foreign language, Mathematics, a Humanity and at least one of the Sciences. In addition, students participate in a Creativity, Action, Service programme, write a 5000-word extended essay, researching a topic of their choice and follow a core critical thinking programme ‘Theory of Knowledge’. Students work towards gaining the highest number of points in order to enter the University of their choosing, both in Italy and abroad.
