If you are looking for a school for your child, it goes without saying that you will be looking for the best school you can find. When searching for a school for your child or children, you will be looking for schools with recognition or titles to help you make that decision. One such title is an International Baccalaureate School, otherwise known as an IB School. These schools emphasize academic excellence as well as character development. St. Cecelia School is an IB School and today, we will give you four major benefits of an International Baccalaureate School.

One major difference between IB Schools and other schools is the emphasis on character development. St. Cecelia School believes that education goes beyond just curriculum and programs. We want to help your student develop their moral character as well as grow in their spiritual formation. International Baccalaureate has a similar concern for character, which is one of the many reasons why St. Cecelia School became an IB School back in 2014.
Public school students are often exposed to a lack of diversified thinking. Most schools use cookie-cutter curriculum, which leads students to learn how to pass tests and get good grades but doesn’t actually lead to any intellectual development. International Baccalaureate wants students to be intellectually independent and to drive their own education. At St. Cecelia School, we use strategic programming to promote our students to think for themselves and to grow intellectually.
Cultural diversity is a very important focus in our culture, and your student’s education should include a heightened cultural awareness. International Baccalaureate has an increased focus on cultural awareness, including multi-lingual programming and coursework. In fact, IB Schools can be taught completely in three different languages through the programs offered with International Baccalaureate.
Another cultural benefit to your student attending an IB School like St. Cecelia School is our emphasis on developing a second language while at our school, through the IB curriculum.
As a parent, academics will certainly be one of, if not the biggest concern when looking for the best school for your child. The most notable benefit of IB Schools is that they promote academic excellence and will help your student become the best student they can be.
