The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma program at Roma Mitchell Secondary College is designed to give students the exact program they need to succeed on a global scale.

Offered to Y11 – Y12 students, the IB program prepares students with a rigorous academic syllabus that goes beyond school learning. We strive to distill an international and culturally aware sense into our students that will better equip them in the real world.

Problems With traditional education

Traditional education – which includes typical school learning and classes – is essential for the development of kids. Without knowledge and academic study, the world economy would not be able to run as efficiently as it currently does.

Academic study is imperative to ensure the future success of the world.

That said, academic study is one-dimensional. Subjects like math, English, and history help students blossom into an adult… but it’s not the ‘full picture’.

Where academic study and traditional learning fall short is preparing students to grow into themselves. Knowledge only goes so far – preparing pupils for the future involves so much more so that each student feels fully ready for whatever the future brings.

This requires additional supplementation to traditional education.

Why the IB Diploma Program works

The goals of the Roma Mitchell IB Diploma Program is as follows:

  • Learning global awareness (becoming culturally aware – this is extremely important!).
  • Learn how to think critically (modern education fails to teach kids how to learn and how to think about problems – these are imperative qualities for success in the real world).
  • Proper time management (every adult knows this – time management is difficult).
  • Become self-confident (everyone is different, but that doesn’t mean your child shouldn’t be encouraged to ‘find their footing’ at their own pace – this is a staple of the RMSC International Baccalaureate Diploma program).

What we do in the Roma Mitchell IB Diploma program in Adelaide is focus on developing a whole learner out of your students. By providing a program that offers extracurricular activities that go beyond traditional learning, students achieve a level of academic and personal growth that is unattainable by regular schooling.

During your child’s experience at our IB Diploma program, they will be challenged to think independently in order to reach their full potential.

The world is fastly changing – the growth your child will experience during the Roma Mitchell IB Diploma program Adelaide will equip them with the exact tools necessary to make an impact in their lives and others.
