As of 2016, Salcantay School will implement the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP). The objective of the DP is to facilitate rich intellectual acquisition and develop thinking skillswith the aim of helping students to grow physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically. These goals go hand in hand with our educational proposal.
The curriculum of the DP consists of subjects on six major areas:
- Studies in language and literature
- Language acquisition
- Individuals and societies
- The arts
These are complemented by three core components:
- Theory of Knowledge (ToK)
- Creativity, activity, service (CAS)
- The extended essay
These core components help to reflect on the nature of knowledge, to perform independent investigation and to develop a project, which often involves community service activities.
The DP, as confirmed by studies, has proven to be an excellent educational option. Salcantay reaffirms its commitment to provide a comprehensive education based on values.
