The school is recognized as an IB World School offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP) since 2001, Middle Years Programme (MYP) in 2003 and the Diploma Programme (DP) in 2010.
Scotch College is renowned for its strong sense of community and extensive academic opportunities resulting in admissions to distinguished and highly competitive entry universities across the world. In 2023, Scotch College opened its doors to remote learners both locally and internationally through its online school, Scotch Global.
Scotch Global caters for students aged 12 to 25 through its three streams: Connect, Thrive and Accelerate. Recognizing the need to prepare students for a rapidly changing world after secondary education, the school has designed its learning model to embrace new technologies, implement progressive teaching practices and promote the IB’s Approaches to Learning. Combined, these elements create a flexible, inclusive, and personalized learning experience. Scotch Global looks to meet students where they are in their learning journey, enhancing student agency through the self-efficacy of every child.
While other schools have already embraced online education, Scotch Global aims to go further by investing in teacher training, state-of-the-art technology and generating bespoke resources. With an equal measure of independent and collaborative face-to-face class time, the students will access an education that builds extensive knowledge and critical skills, within a supportive and personally connected community.
Scotch College is a leader in progressive and responsible technology integration. With a well-resourced team, the level of support to staff, students and parents is second to none. For many years, the College has provided online learning to students, allowing a seamless transition between face-to-face and online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Scotch Global is a committed World IB school that operates in the same time zone as 60% of the world's population.
