Career-related Program

Foss Pro Start students

What is the IB Career-related Program?  

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 leads to further/higher education, apprenticeships or employment.

The CP was 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.

Foss is a Candidate School for the Career-realted Program. We are pursuing authorization as an IB World School for CP—schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Foss believes is important for our students.
