SAINT JUDE CATHOLIC SCHOOL, in its commitment to render quality and relevant education to its students, is embarking on a new journey that will surely catapult its educational standards to greater heights – the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) accreditation. As the school braves the challenges and curricular innovations that an international curriculum entails, here is a glimpse of what the IBDP is all about.
Top universities in the country such as the University of the Philippines (UP), Ateneo De Manila University (ADMU), De La Salle University (DSLU), and the University of Santo Tomas (UST) accept IB graduates and grant course credits. More than all these, the greatest benefit that the IBDP can offer each learner is the one of a kind learning experience which brings education into a whole new light. IB graduates love to learn, and that profound love for learning translates into individuals who are international minded and life-long learners.
The IBDP requires students to choose courses in each of the six (6) subject groups namely: Language and Literature, Language Acquisition, Individuals and Societies, Sciences, Mathematics and The Arts.
Students are to remain in these courses for two (2) years, acquiring a depth of knowledge and a plethora of experiences that prepare them for what lies ahead. At the heart of the IBDP are its core components – Creativity, Activity, and Service (CAS), Extended Essay (EE) and Theory of Knowledge (TOK). These three components must be complied with by students to be a bonafide IBDP graduate.
Saint Jude Catholic School is an IB World School. Being an IB World School means sharing a common philosophy and commitment to high quality, challenging, international education with other highly acclaimed educational institutions in the globe. Saint Jude Catholic School believing in the Judenites’ capabilities to tackle the challenge of the IB curriculum has offered the Diploma Programme since 2016.
