International Baccalaureate Program
Mount Vernon High School offers a rigorous, highly independent, international honors program. The IB program, respected worldwide, develops internationally minded people who recognize their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet and help to create a better more peaceful world. We will use a holistic approach, offering stimulating programs and supporting community engagement. IB students either enter the IB Diploma Programme, studying six subjects over three years, or to earn certificates for individual courses. Those in the Diploma Program must also complete Theory of Knowledge and Extended Essay classes and must fulfill a Creativity, Activity and Service requirement with 150 hours of service outside the classroom.
