We’ve finally made it! Last May 18, 2016, VCIS earned its International Baccalaureate® (IB) accreditation. The three-year endeavor of the school finally paid off after it was green lighted by the IB Asia Pacific to offer the IB Diploma Programme (DP) starting this school year 2016–2017. The school now proudly joins the roster of 17 IB World Schools in the Philippines and is the 15th school to offer the IBDP.
The IBDP is an assessed program for students aged 16–19 and will be implemented in the Senior High School program. This comprehensive and balanced curriculum with challenging assessments and a unique theory of knowledge course enables students to explore the nature of man’s knowledge. It is a crowning achievement for VCIS to be recognized by the IB and be able to start with its pioneer batch of IBDP students this July 2016.
Although VCIS will have a lot on its plate this school year, all will be worth its efforts and dedication as it continually sows seeds of excellence, Christian character, and leadership and reap globally-competitive students in the future.
