Career-related Program* (Candidate School)
What is the IB Career-related Program?
Foss is a Candidate School* for the IB-Career-Related Program. For further information about the IB and its programs, visit www.ibo.org
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Career-related Program is an academically challenging and career-related two-year program available to 11th/12th grade students. The program can lead to further/higher education, apprenticeships or employment.
The CP is being specifically developed for students who wish to engage in career-related learning while gaining transferable and lifelong skills in applied knowledge, critical thinking, communication, and cross-cultural engagement.
Students at Foss may take courses in pathways for Broadcast media, ProStart cooking & restaurant management, Wood technology, Sports medicine & health science, AFJROTC Leadership, or Photography and design (subject to change).
Foss is currently a IB CP Candidate School. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Foss believes is important for our students.
*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme, or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
