The IB Diploma

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme is a perfect match for Le Régent. Its mission is to “develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect”. The IB is a holistic educational program recognized by all major universities. At its heart is the IB Learner Profile which asks students to be inquirers, knowledgeable, open-minded thinkers and communicators, who are also caring, principled, balanced and reflective risk-takers. The Core of the IB Diploma aims to broaden students’ educational experience, challenging them to apply their knowledge and skills. In Theory of Knowledge (ToK), students reflect on the nature of knowledge, and in their Extended Essay (EE), they complete a 4,000-word independent, self-directed piece of research. Finally, Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) involves a diverse range of activities and an individual CAS project
