Is there college recognition?
Yes. According to the International Baccalaureate Key Indicators 2009, 2,765 universities, worldwide, have published IB recognition policies. Of those, 2,103 are located in North America. Almost all schools recognize IB Higher Level (HL) courses for college credit and some offer credit for Standard Level (SL) as well. Most HL IB courses will earn a student between 4 – 8 credits depending on their final marks. Most universities recognize a mark of 4 or higher (the IB scale is 7 points). Students at the Academy will also have access to Advanced Placement (AP) courses as well. Information can be found at www.ibo.org/recognition
