• What is an IB education?


    Loudoun Valley High School is starting a journey to become an International Baccalaureate World School offering the Diploma Program and our first step in this process is to begin offering the LCPS Pre-International Baccalaureate program (LCPS Pre-IB) starting in the 2023-2024 school year.  

    We are excited to be offering this program and want to take a moment to give you a sense of where we are in our process of becoming an IB World School and what it means for you and for Loudoun Valley High School.

  • Loudoun Valley High School is a candidate school* for the Diploma Programme. We are pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.

     * Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer the Diploma Programme (DP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
