International Baccalaureate Program
At Hoggard, students accepted into the IB Diploma Programme participate in a globally- accredited curriculum, designed to focus on the whole person as a learner rather than a person who takes specific subjects to be learned. While students are enrolled in the programme, they will have to take courses in 6 different areas including: Language and Literature, Language Acquisition, Individuals and Societies, Experimental Sciences, Mathematics, and the Arts.
While rigorous academics happen inside of school, students also reflect on their creativity, activity and service outside of school, therefore growing as a whole person rather than being measured solely by their academic success. Ultimately, the curriculum’s purpose is to make the world a better place by inspiring students to think about knowledge and new ideas through various perspectives. Ultimately, IB learners will graduate to be inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective. IB students love to learn, and ultimately grow as learners and people of the world.
