International Baccalaureate Organization

The International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) is an international educational foundation created in 1968 in Geneva, Switzerland. It is now present in many countries throughout the world. The IBO has been present in Costa Rica since 1991; today it forms over 20 public schools and more than 30 private schools.

Today, the IB is the gold seal of quality for young people who complete the program; it provides them with ample opportunities for university enrollment and future career paths.
Currently our foundation is recognized by the IBO as “The Association of IB World Schools in Costa Rica, Central America, and the Caribbean.”.

The Diploma Program Curriculum

The Diploma Program curriculum of the International Baccalaureate is comprised of six subject groups and the core components: Theory of Knowledge (TOK), Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS), and the Extended Essay.

Thanks to these core modules, the students reflect on the nature of knowledge itself; they conduct independent investigation and complete community service projects.

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Curriculum


This program lasts two years, and it is offered for students between 16 and 19 years of age. Upon completion the student receives an international certification which allows them access to higher education at universities throughout the world. The program is imparted and led by The IB International Organization

Through their different programs, the IB International Organization offers students the opportunity to direct their own educational path. Participants of the program develop the habits and the self confidence necessary to progress and to make a difference.

This allows for students to drive forward with a comprehensive profile of knowledge and skills upon graduation. For more information:
