These two young men not only mastered the six IB subject areas, but they also successfully completed their Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge requirement, the Creativity Action Service component, and multiple internal and external assessments governed by advanced international standards.

Adam and Tanner worked diligently to earn the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma. In addition to Adam and Tanner earning the IB diploma, classmates in the IB cohort earned several academic scholarships from their respective colleges totaling over $200,000 combined. 

Awarding of Diplomas

Adam is a freshman at Rowan University in the Honors Engineering Program.   Tanner attends St. Joseph’s University as a recipient of the Presidential Scholarship majoring in Accounting. 

The International Baccalaureate Program is considered to be the most rigorous high school program a student can attempt.  Salem High School is only one of thirteen schools in the state of New Jersey that has been approved as an International Baccalaureate World School.  It is the only high school in South Jersey to hold that honor.
