International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme

IB education centers on learners, well-researched instruction and explores diverse, global content.


Beaumont School achieved International Baccalaureate (IB) World School status in 2017, and is the only all-girls high school in Northeast Ohio offering the IB Diploma Programme.  The IB aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

The Diploma Program (DP) is an extraordinary and challenging two-year curriculum for junior and senior year.  DP structures and balances rigorous academic work that will push you outside the classroom into community service, creativity, and physical activity. It will prepare you for college and beyond.

All of Beaumont's educators use the IB framework to design curriculum and every student has the opportuntiy and is encouraged to take an IB level course.  Some students take one or several IB classes in their favorite subjects. And whether you take just a single class, earn a subject-specific IB Certificate, or work through the full two-year program towards the IB Diploma, you’ll learn to think deeply and critically.

"IB cultivates caring, inquiring, internationally-minded and service-oriented young people, which aligns beautifully with our Ursuline mission." - Ann Hoelzel, Assistant Principal of Academic Affairs
