Our College Preparatory Programme enables students to have the requisite life and cognitive/academic skills, in order to thrive well, not be burnt out, and be eager to continue with the rest of their college life after Keys.


At Keys, we understand that skills required in college are developed over time so that they become ingrained ways of thinking, automatic habits related to how intellectual activities are pursued, lead to the development of mental processes and capabilities necessary for college-level work.


Through the Diploma Programme, schools are able to develop students who:

  • have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge
  • flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically
  • study at least two languages
  • excel in traditional academic subjects
  • explore the nature of knowledge through the programme’s unique theory of knowledge course.

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) learner profile describes a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond academic success. They imply a commitment to help all members of the school community learn to respect themselves, others and the world around them.


Each of the IB’s programmes is committed to the development of students according to the IB learner profile.


The profile aims to develop learners who are:

  • Inquirers
  • Knowledgeable
  • Thinkers
  • Communicators
  • Principled
  • Open-minded
  • Caring
  • Risk-takers
  • Balanced
  • Reflective

Our College Preparatory Program presents multiple pathways for students. Read and discover the opportunities available for the students. Whichever pathway it is, all students will benefit from the same IB curriculum, and the same learning experiences.
