International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme
Aden Bowman Collegiate and Bedford Road Collegiate are IB World Schools that share a common philosophy -- a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education. The IB philosophy promotes the development of a well-rounded, service-oriented citizen of the world. 

The IB Diploma Programme  (for Grade 11-12 students) is designed for students ages 16-19 who are academically motivated and desire the rigorous curriculum often as a preparation for post-secondary study. A student who completes the IB Diploma Programme will not only gain an enhanced set of organizational, writing, speaking and collaborative skills, but the IB graduate is actively recruited by most universities in Canada, the United States and the world. Students who complete an IB diploma will also achieve a Saskatchewan high school diploma.

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme strives for excellence in preparing students for the 21st century. Saskatoon Public Schools values the fact that our community is very much part of the global consciousness. That global awareness—combined with scholarship and our values of tolerance, respect and compassion—fits perfectly with the International Baccalaureate organization's mission to encourage students to become active, well-rounded and influential citizens of their local and global communities.

Program Highlights

  • Enjoy university recruitment, scholarships and advanced admission offers
  • Do independent research
  • Develop a spirit of community service
  • Develop the skills essential to success in post-secondary study
  • Opportunities for student travel and collaboration with other IB students

Who should consider IB?

  • Grade 10 students who are academically motivated, seeking a challenge, and have a well-rounded approach to their studies
  • Students interested in building a skill set for life
  • Students who plan to attend university (but not exclusively)

It is important to be aware of the course options that will satisfy the prerequisites for the IB Diploma Programme. IB preparatory courses offered at the Grade 9 or 10 levels provide appropriate programming in preparation for the diploma program.

Beginning with the 2022-23 school year, new students entering the two-year International Baccalaureate diploma program will be charged a fee of $2,000. Students not taking the diploma program will be charged an individual IB course fee of $300 per course. More information is available in the IB Programme FAQ sheet.
