IB Diploma Programme Authorization: it’s official!

March 16, 2018

ASA is now officially authorized to offer the IB Diploma Programme (DP), beginning the 2018-19 school year! This authorization is a significant milestone for the school, which has offered the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) since 2013.

The International Baccalaureate Organization has conducted a range of studies that indicate significant benefits to students who take the DP. Research indicates that DP graduates complete college faster than their peers, feel more prepared for college-level coursework which involves research, and are better able to manage their time and cope with demanding workloads. You can read about the key research findings here.

We look forward to our continued work towards the implementation of the programme. For more information about IB DP at ASA, please check our Secondary School page or contact our Admissions Office at admissions@asamadagascar.org.
