Becoming a World School

Why Seek Authorization as an International Baccalaureate World School (IB)?

A hallmark of HFCA is our commitment to continuous improvement. Authorization as an IB school is a logical next step in our effort to take HFCA to the next level. HFCA’s thinking curriculum was already aligned with much of the IB framework including inquiry-based learning, transdisciplinary themes, and foreign language instruction. In addition, becoming part of the IB organization provides our faculty and staff:
 
  • Significantly more professional development
  • Access to IB’s online curriculum centre with publications and teaching materials
  • The opportunity to participate in worldwide online forums with other IB practitioners,
  • The ability to incorporate educational best practices from a range of international frameworks and curricula.
