The IB Americas Global Centre Opens
The International Baccalaureate Americas Global Centre officially opened on Monday, 16 August 2010, in Bethesda, Maryland, USA. The Americas Global Centre is the first of three planned Centres worldwide to open. The Centre will support schools throughout the Americas and will house several global divisions, including professional development, policy and research, as well as school services.
The Centre is part of the organization’s plan to move our mission and programmes forward into a new chapter in the IB’s history—one that will not only provide more service and support to every IB World School—but also increased access to IB programmes to more students.

Both the IB Buenos Aires and IB Vancouver offices will remain open and will continue to provide support to the IB community throughout the Americas.
