Is the International Baccalaureate Program the Future of Education?
St. Cecelia Catholic School is the only private school that features the International Baccalaureate program in Pinellas County. We believe that the IB Program is the best education program available for helping children develop into compassionate, inquisitive, active young adults.
But how long will IB remain as the most thorough, successful education program on the market? Today, St. Cecelia will discuss why the IB program is so successful, and why it will likely remain the preeminent program available to young students.
The IB Program is so successful in part because it is the most rigorous academic program available. At the same time, the curriculum is designed to foster a love of learning. Students learn skills that make up the foundation of a life of learning. IB encourages critical thinking and an analytical mind. Students who have completed the IB program are more inquisitive and capable of independent thinking than their peers.
The IB Program asks its students to become responsible for their own learning. Self-motivation and research skills are crucial to their success. And those skills directly translate to their educational progress. Students aren’t forced to think in a box; they can find their own approaches to learning and discovery help to keep them interested in the subjects they study.
In addition, students become more culturally aware through the development of a second language. This helps to open career and education doors through the remainder of their life. As our world becomes more connected, bilingual students find opportunities that others simply do not.
IB Program in the Future
As IB Program graduates continue to outperform their peers in secondary education, it is very likely that more schools will gravitate towards our curriculum. IB Program isn’t easy, but no other program prepares students for life as well as International Baccalaureate Program does. The difficulty of the program combined with the holistic approach of the curriculum is a recipe for success.
