Uplift Education

Academics / IB®

Our focus is education for a better world, and at Uplift, EVERY child receives a globally focused, college-prep education.

Academics: Global Learning For All

We decided long ago that the International Baccalaureate ® (IB) would be our academic program for all grades.  What is IB®?  The IB® programs develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who are motivated to succeed. Along with strong academics, IB® students learn to be aware of and care about the world around them.

All Uplift schools are either IB authorized, or in the consideration or preparation phase of authorization. To see the authorization status of each school, click here.
