International Baccalaureate - Mercy High School

Personal Focus. Global Perspective. Mercy Changes Everything.

International Baccalaureate

The only all-girls Catholic school in Baltimore to offer the prestigious International Baccalaureate Programme!

Widely considered the world’s premier academic curriculum, the International Baccalaureate (IB) is the perfect fit with Mercy High School’s educational philosophy of excellence. Student inquiry, intellectual risk-taking, and international-mindedness permeate our classrooms and ensure our Mercy Girls are well-prepared for college and beyond. All of our students in grades 9 and 10 take part in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP). Through IB, Mercy provides each student a rigorous world-class educational experience, encouraging academic achievement, intellectual confidence, and personal growth.

MYP students are 34% more likely than non-MYP students to take at least one IB Diploma Programme or Advanced Placement (AP) exam in high school.
