Cost of the Program

The school board does not cover the full cost of the IB Program. The amount each student pays depends on the number and type of IB courses selected. Fees cover the cost of membership of the International Baccalaureate organization which is based in Geneva, curriculum implementation locally and the cost of supplies. In each grade, a portion of the fee charged covers these costs as well as those described for that grade level.
