A student’s choice to follow the IB Diploma Programme (IB DP) is an important decision for MYP Year 5 students. The main goal of the Pre-IB DP programme at CGS is to acquaint students with the courses, teachers and how the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme works.
Since 2010, when the Pre-IB DP programme commenced, CGS students have been gradually introduced to the spirit, curriculum and implementation of the IB DP, gaining valuable experience in the process. Participants in the Pre-IB DP do not have to attend the IB Diploma Programme, but with the completion of the Pre-IB DP, they will surely have the resources, experience and judgment to decide on their academic course, either the IB Diploma Programme or General Lyceum.
Additionally, the students of Pre-IB DP, together with their parents, will have the opportunity to attend presentations given by admissions officers representing universities from abroad.
The courses are taught in English (except for the Modern Greek course) and for the academic year 2020-21 are the following:
Business & Management
Theory of Knowledge
The activities of the CAS (Creativity, Action, Service) programme as well as workshops and seminars on Time Management, Creative Thinking, Academic Etiquette, Choosing the Right University for You, etc are part of the Pre-IB DP programme.
The courses are taught by experienced IB Diploma Programme teachers at CGS and are offered, in particular for this year, online through the Microsoft Teams platform, every Thursday, 17:00 – 18:30. Classes will begin on Thursday, October 1, 2020.
