At Lauriston, we offer both the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) or the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme. In doing so, we encourage each student to explore and develop her individual strengths and passions.
The outstanding results of our IB Class of 2019 reinforces this approach and reflects the depth and diversity of our program.
The IB aims to develop students who, as well as completing their academic studies, keep active, stay creatively engaged and gain an understanding and appreciation of local and global communities and their responsibilities as global citizens. Students do all these things through the CAS program, an integral part of the IB that works in tandem with student activities, such as the wide range of sporting, community and extra-curricular activities available to Lauriston students.
Students who complete the IB at Lauriston receive tremendous support from our team of skilled and experienced staff, from mentoring students through their extended essay to facilitating student groups such as the Amnesty International team. Lauriston also has a dedicated Careers Centre and practitioner to assist students in planning their future pathway.
Our graduating 2019 IB cohort achieved fantastic results, with a median IB ATAR of 97.3%, while 50% of the group achieved an equivalent ATAR of 97.35 or more. In addition to this, 6% of our girls were in the top 1% of the state with ATAR scores above 99.
Our IB students are intellectually curious, courageous and well-rounded girls who are willing to engage in every opportunity and meet every challenge with enthusiasm.
