International Baccalaureate Authorization
International Baccalaureate authorization is a lengthy and rigorous process that often takes years. Schools are eligible to be considered once they are fully established with all planned grades. During the candidacy phase, IB provides guidance and support to schools as they work toward authorization and confirms that the school is prepared to offer the IB programme with fidelity to the IB’s programme standards and practices, rules and regulations. IB authorized schools must to through re-authorization every 5 years.
Schools in the candidacy phase are pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Uplift Education believes is important for our students.
Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme, or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit www.ibo.org
