International Baccalaureate Diploma Program

Our IB teacher training includes 17 hours of classroom instruction. Our program prepares IB teachers for work in IB schools and refines skills for those familiar with the international baccalaureate curriculum. We have three levels of workshops:

  • Category 1 (C1) is for teachers who are either new to the IB, come from schools that are applying for International Baccalaureate authorization, or are experienced International Baccalaureate educators seeking to help their school with the application process.

  • Category 2 (C2) is for teachers who have completed Category 1 training and/or whose schools have begun the International Baccalaureate program.

  • Category 3 (C3) workshops cover topics for both new and advanced International Baccalaureate educators.

In addition, 9th and 10th grade teachers can take non-International Baccalaureate professional development workshops.

The diploma workshops are typically held at the Albuquerque Marriott Hotel. Please do not contact the hotel staff to make a reservation. Your registration for the workshops will include the hotel room fee. Topics change every year; check the course listings for this summer’s program.

Students don’t apply directly to the school; they are selected by committees in their home countries based on academic achievement, leadership, and curiosity about and involvement with global events and cultures.


Philanthropist Shelby Davis has created a $40 million endowment that provides 50 U.S. students with full scholarships to attend a UWC every year.


Our more than 3,357 UWC-USA alumni are spread across the globe: North America 26%, Latin America and Caribbean 16%, Africa 10%, Middle East 6%, Asia 14%, Europe 21%, Pacific 2%


UWC-USA offers the International Baccalaureate diploma program. Students can choose from IB classes in 28 subjects – a remarkable number given the size of the school.
