IB Diploma Program


The IB Diploma Program (DP) is available to 11th and 12th grade students at Central. IB DP courses are built around globally recognized advanced curriculum and taught using active, inquiry-driven instruction. Students can choose either to take individual IB DP classes or to participate in one of our DP cohort programs - the full IB Diploma or IB Scholar with Distinction.

Important: The IB Diploma Program at Central is not a gifted and talented program intended only for our highest achieving students. Our program is open to all. There is no application and no prerequisites to take part. All students are welcome. If you want to be ready for whatever comes after high school, you're ready to work hard, and you have the drive to succeed, this program is for you! #IB4All
