Sophia Mundi is proud to be an International Baccalaureate World School. International Baccalaureate schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that aligns seamlessly with Steiner education.  

Echoing the Steiner philosophy, the IB curriculum at Sophia Mundi emphasises the importance of holistic education, which extends beyond academic achievement to encompass the full spectrum of personal development. By encouraging self-reflection, facilitating collaborative learning and community participation, and allowing students to follow their own passions and interests, the IB programme at Sophia Mundi delivers a deeply meaningful educational experience. Our students develop a positive attitude to learning that prepares students for tertiary studies and lifelong learning. This approach is designed to meet students' individual needs and equip them with the capabilities required to thrive as engaged, contributing members of the global community.

The IB programme emphasises critical thinking, global awareness, and independent research, equipping students with the skills and knowledge essential for success in higher education and beyond. By integrating the IB program into our Steiner curriculum, we ensure that our students are not only academically prepared but also develop a broad worldview and a deep understanding of their responsibilities as global citizens.

The IB teachers at Sophia Mundi are experts in their respective fields, equipped with the skills to deliver a globally-minded curriculum.

With a commitment to academic excellence, they guide students through the IB programme, ensuring they are well-prepared for higher education and global citizenship. Their teaching methods are dynamic, student-centred, and focused on developing each learner's potential to the fullest.
