Diploma Programme

Preparing for success at university and life beyond!
GNS is privileged to offer the highly esteemed International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (DP) to learners in Grade 11 and 12, as an option for curricular enrichment.

Graduates of this two-year program, considered the gold standard in university preparation, are accepted enthusiastically into universities around the world, who often reward our students’ hard work by honouring IB Diploma Higher Level credits as first-year university credits.

Glenlyon Norfolk School has been an authorized IB Diploma Programme School since 1996. Since that time, our students consistently score above the world average on their IB exams.

Our IB students and faculty have been recognized through awards and scholarships in Canada and internationally. Our teachers also serve as examiners, teacher trainers, and curriculum leaders for the International Baccalaureate Organization.

The IB Diploma Programme is an internationally-recognized two-year course of study with a variety of both internal and external evaluations, and is an excellent indicator of success at university. Students who graduate with an IB Diploma often gain advanced standing and credit for up to one full year at university.
