Qatar Academy International Baccalaureate
Welcome to Senior School

International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP)

The IB Diploma Programme is recognized around the world as a rigorous and efficacious college and university preparation program. Students graduate from Qatar Academy ready to face the demands of university life in terms of academic preparedness, but also in terms of how well they know themselves and their learning styles.

The Qatar Academy IB program's strength, and what sets it apart from other pre-college and university programs, is its comprehensive curriculum. Students are required to study English, a second language (Arabic, French or Spanish), math, science, humanities and an elective subject of their choice. Electives can include visual arts, theater and music or a second science or humanities subject. Students are also required to write a 4,000-word research paper on a subject of their choice, an area in which Qatar Academy students excel. Six members of the class of 2011gained national awards for outstanding quality on their research papers.

This record of academic excellence is also evident in the final results of the IB Diploma examinations. QA students consistently perform at a standard above the world average and have gained entry to Ivy League universities in the US, Russell Group universities in the UK, Education City universities in Qatar and the most prestigious universities in Canada and Australia.

IB Diploma teachers at Qatar Academy cooperatively plan and assess students’ work to ensure that learning opportunities and grading are consistent and accurate. Teamwork is at the heart of what we do and as a team we help produce caring, motivated young people who are equipped to take up leadership positions locally and around the world.
