Welcome to High School
We have a unique Grade 10 bridging program at OCAC Suzhou where subjects are grouped in 6 groups that align with the IB DP subject groups. Students gain the knowledge and skills required for the rigorous and challenging two-year Diploma Program at OCAC. Students do one subject from each of the following group and instead of Group 6 can take an additional Group 3 or 4 subject. They also have the opportunity of taking IGCSE exams in English, Maths and and Sciences at the end of of the programme. From 2022, Grade 10 bridging program will have two tracks. One will be a one year Pre DP programme and the other is a two year Pre DP programme. The first track is a more targeted course for mature，confident, academically strong students who have acquired a sufficient good level of academic English skills, while the second track is for students who would benefit from a slower paced program and need more academic and language support to succeed in IB DP.
IBDP (International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme) is a two year programme. The programme aims to develop students who have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge – students who flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically.
Students must take 6 subjects , one from each group and 3 core elements which are unique to the IB programme: Theory of knowledge (TOK), Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS), and the Extended Essay (EE). Group 6 is optional and a second additional subject maybe taken from Group 3 or 4.
