International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme
As we set sail on a new educational voyage, a warm and enthusiastic welcome awaits our Year 11 and Year 12 students at Central Coast Steiner School, heralding the introduction of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme from 2025. Our vision for this journey is to nurture students who not only acquire profound breadth and depth of knowledge, but also thrive holistically—physically, intellectually, emotionally, and ethically.
What is the IB Diploma?
The Diploma Programme (DP) is composed of six diverse subject groups, complemented by the DP core, encompassing theory of knowledge (TOK), creativity, activity, service (CAS), and the extended essay. Within the core of the DP, students embark on a voyage of self-discovery, contemplating the essence of knowledge, pursuing independent research, and contributing to projects often intertwined with community service.
What subjects will Central Coast Steiner School offer?
Our curriculum offerings span the spectrum of the six IB Diploma groups:
- English Language and Literature (Group 1),
- Spanish (Beginners) (Group 2),
- Psychology and/or Business Management (Group 3),
- Environmental Systems and Societies (Group 4),
- Mathematics (Group 5), and
- Film Studies (Group 6).
To cater to individual interests, students have the option to delve into an additional individuals and societies subject (Group 3) or study an additional language (Group 2) instead of Film Studies.
The introduction of the IB Diploma marks an exhilarating moment in the journey of Central Coast Steiner School, filled with promise and potential.
