The academic programme, International Baccalaureate(IB) Diploma, is a broad based two year plan of rigorous academic content leading to final examinations for students between 16 and 19 years of age. As its name implies, it is an international programme and does not follow the traditional Ecuadorian academic system.
The general objectives of the program include providing a balanced, integrated education which will lead students to have a more complete global vision.
IB has become a symbol of intellectual capacity, achievement, academic integrity and a solid base for future university study and beyond. This base is formed through a dedication to learning, skill development, and discipline. IB graduates have the skills necessary to study anywhere in the world upon completion of the program.
Colegio Americano has been a member school of International Baccalaureate (IB) since 1986. It was the first IB school in the coastal region of Ecuador and one of the first in the entire country. Given Colegio Americano´s status as an early adaptor, over time the school has provided assistance and guidance to other Ecuadorian schools during their transitions into becoming IB schools.
