        The International Baccalaureate Program at Seminole High School is an officially recognized affiliate member of the International Baccalaureate Organization.

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program is a demanding pre-university course of study that leads to examinations and designed for highly motivated secondary school students aged 16 to 19. The program has earned a reputation for rigorous assessment, helping IB diploma holders access the world’s leading universities. The Diploma Program's grading system is criterion-referenced, meaning each student’s performance is measured against well-defined levels of achievement. IB grades on a 1 to 7 scale, with 7 being the highest score attainable. To earn the IB Diploma a student must earn a minimum of 24 points in six subjects, complete 150 hours of outside activities (CAS), complete the Theory of Knowledge course, and write an original 4000 word research paper (extended essay).
