The IB program was monumental in my academic and personal growth at Cardinal Newman and beyond. The IB program offers the perfect balance of being academically challenged with classes and topics that actually interest and excite you! One of the best things about the IB program at Newman is that you will never feel alone. The teachers are always more than willing to do anything to help you succeed! Throughout the two years, your peers really become your family. I would highly recommend the IB program because not only does it look good for college applications, but it helps you become the best student you can be while approaching your education in a completely new way. As I start college in the fall as a Pre-Med student at Wake Forest University, I am confident that my two years as an International Baccalaureate student prepared me for everything college and life will throw at me!
