Course of Study
TRADITIONAL DEGREE PROGRAM
At Newman, learning relies not merely on the facts. Students are encouraged to be critical thinkers, delving into subjects, applying this newfound knowledge into better understanding historical and current events. Those students pursuing a traditional high school diploma at Newman School benefit from the ability to take advantage of the school’s IB Diploma program. They may register for individual IB courses and complete these worthwhile and interesting areas of study, including sitting for the culminating IB course exam. IB Diploma Course candidates all receive a Certificate that may help secure advanced placement credit at certain universities.
NON-EXAMINATION IB STUDENTS:
Students opting not to sit the IB Course exam may still undertake one or more IB Courses because of interest in the subject matter and the academic demands made by such subjects. Students gain experience and knowledge which will strengthen their ability to meet academic challenges at university.
