Our Expectations

St. Stephen’s supports the fundamental core values of the International Baccalaureate Organization’s mission to create motivated students who are well prepared for the future. The IB program is a “worldwide learning community” designed to foster students as global citizens who are able to meet the challenges of a fast-paced, robust information age with superior academic skills, open-mindedness and cultural sensitivity.

The principles that are valued in each of our IB candidates include:

  • a willingness to learn
  • self-discipline
  • applied academic abilities
  • self-motivation
  • maturity
  • confidence
  • community participation

Who Should Enroll for the International Baccalaureate?

There are two groups of students who should pursue the IB Diploma: those who need it for entrance to the universities of their choice and those who embrace it as an academically and personally challenging course of study. All students must be willing to work hard, must be self-motivated, and must be able to organize their time effectively.


Students who choose not to pursue the full IB Diploma may take IB Certificates. Study for IB examinations may be combined with Advanced Placement in some subject areas.
