Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School International Baccalaureate Diploma Program 

The International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB) Program was founded in 1965 to provide a rigorous well-rounded education for students through-out the world so they would qualify for university study no matter where they had pursued their high school education. The IB Diploma Program, therefore, has a common, broad curriculum that is assessed by internationally developed and graded oral and written examinations. The IB Diploma Program is unique in that it provides a liberal arts, interdisciplinary education leading to a diploma, which is recognized throughout the world. The curriculum is based on the topics and goals identified by the curriculum board of the International Baccalaureate in Cardiff, Wales.

The requirements for an IB diploma include course work and passing scores on examinations in English, a foreign language, mathematics, experimental science, social studies, and one elective; completion of a course entitled Theory of Knowledge, a 4,000-word extended essay, and 150 hours of CAS (creativity, action, and service). B-CC's IB program maintains an open admissions policy.

B-CC's IB Diploma Program strives to do the following:

  • Create a challenging academic program
  • Emphasize "formation" rather than "information" — teach thinking, not memorization
  • Help to lay a foundation for a lifetime of learning
  • Foster high standards of personal development and a mature sense of responsibility
  • Value and nurture diversity
  • Provide many opportunities to develop talents in leadership, communications, performing arts, athletics, and other abilities
