On October 8, 2014, American Youth Academy was awarded the status of IB World School Offering the Diploma Programme and joined the ranks of over 3,900 IB World Schools in 147 countries. As one of the world's most respected pre-university courses of study, this programme will now be offered to AYA's high school students in their junior and senior years.
Designed for highly motivated students, the IB Diploma Programme is a rigorous two-year course of study leading to externally assessed examinations. The DP offers both breadth, in terms of the range of courses offered, and depth, in that students must take each for two years. It is a deliberate compromise between the specialization required by some colleges and universities and the breadth preferred by others. Students who do not wish to become full IB Diploma candidates may elect to take IB courses in their areas of academic strength. These students will receive an IB certificate for each course successfully completed.
Course descriptions may be updated at a later time and adapted for class at any given moment. The instructor is responsible for informing students of any changes once enrolled.
