True to the avant-garde tradition that characterizes Santiago College, our school has been part of the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) since 1982.

This non-profit educational organization arose from a group of educators whose dream was to promote tolerance and intercultural understanding among the youth of the world, through a shared academic experience where critical thinking and contact with multiple points of view were encouraged.
Santiago College has been a pioneer by adopting and offering three IBO programs:

The International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB Diploma), awarded by the IBO on the basis of international assessment processes, has become an additional avenue for entry to both national and international universities.
