Apply for IB Middle Years Programme (IB MYP)

Applicants in grade 9, JHS 3 or its equivalent are eligible to apply for admission into our two-year IB MYP program. Admission is highly competitive and is based on an entrance examination and subsequent interview for shortlisted applicants. Priority is given to qualified students from SOS Children’s Villages across Africa.

SOS-Hermann Gmeiner International College is a candidate school* for the MYP. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.

 * Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
