Scotch Global selected as one of seven schools globally to deliver the online International Baccalaureate

The International Baccalaureate Organisation has officially announced that Scotch College has been selected as one of seven schools globally to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma online.

This programme will be delivered by Scotch College's online school, Scotch Global. Headmaster, Dr Alec O'Connell said,

this is an incredible vote of confidence not only in Scotch Global, but for the ability of a Western Australian school to offer access to a world class curriculum to families across all Western Australia, Australia, and the global region. Significantly Scotch Global, is in a time zone shared by more than 60% of the world's population, thus increasing access to the IB Diploma for many students who currently may be unable to avail themselves of this world class programme.

The International Baccalaureate is delivered in more than 160 countries and 5,700 schools across the globe. Since 2018 the number of programmes has increased by 34.2% with more than 1.95 million students completing an IB programme in 2024.

Head of Scotch Global, Mrs Cara Fugill said,

Recent Scotch graduates are studying at some of the world's most distinguished and highly competitive entry universities across the world, including Oxford, Harvard, London School of Economics, and the Wharton School of Business at UPenn. The IBO (International Baccalaureate Organisation) has recognised the strength of Scotch's programme and given it one of very few global licenses to now make that offering more readily accessible to students in a variety of settings and locations.

Mrs Fugill spoke about the fact the school will not simply be online coursework.

With an equal measure of independent and collaborative face-to-face class time, the students will access an education that builds extensive knowledge, critical skills, within a supportive and personally connected community
