The best preparation for the IB Diploma Programme

For the past 21 years, IB students from around the world have enjoyed a summer in Boston with OSC's Pre IBDP Summer School. Making the most of their summer break, students explore the cultural and historic sights of Boston, experience life as a college student, and fully prepare to begin their IB studies. With expert teaching from experienced IB teachers, students enjoy the summer sunshine amidst the hallowed halls of Harvard and MIT.
