The Diploma Programme (DP) for students aged 16 to 19 (grades 11 and 12 in the United States) is a rigorous and integrated two-year curriculum -- with course studies across the curriculum -- that is recognized by leading universities around the world. IB maintains its high standards by actively training and supporting teachers, and by authorizing and evaluating IB World Schools.
All current Northville High School sophomores (grade 10) interested in admission to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme will apply during the spring of their sophomore year, prior to the close of the general registration period.
Over the next few weeks, please note there will be some revisions to this DP website, specifically updating the finalized 2022 applications, DP planning document, and FAQs.
