Aoba-Japan International School (Aoba) has been selected by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) to deliver Asia/Pacific’s first IBO Online Diploma Programme to high school students in Japan and abroad. Students enrolled in the pilot programme will have the opportunity to achieve the IB Diploma Programme Diploma via a cutting edge, 100% online high school program.

The IB Diploma Program is offered online through remote learning. That is, students participate in all classes virtually learning together with on-campus students. The technology infrastructure at Aoba enables students in the online programme full access to on-campus classes with a very similar experience to our face-to-face students.

2. Online Global Leadership Diploma

  • For full-time Aoba students
  • August start
  • 2-year programme
  • Mostly asynchronous learning (self-paced)
  • Opportunity to participate in some classes virtually, learning together with on-campus students
  • Students can participate from any timezone.

The Global Leadership Diploma is a program unique to Aoba and has been designed to be responsive to each student’s individual needs as they design their own units of inquiry based on their passions and interests while also completing other subjects that complement their individual inquiries.

The Global Leadership Diploma is also offered completely online. That is, students work at their own pace using an online learning platform with all necessary materials to design their own inquiries. Students are guided through the process by a teacher in the role of Leadership Coach. Students completing the Global leadership Diploma are also able to take IB Diploma Program subjects, offering the most responsive and flexible high school program on the market today. 


An experience to suit everyone

Leveraging cutting edge digital technology and innovative hybrid teaching and learning methodologies, the Online Campus experience in both the IB Diploma Program and the Aoba Global Leadership Diploma are designed to meet the demands of connected, collaborative and creative modern day students. The combination of on-campus and online experiences in both of these two remarkable programmes has extended our ability to create a high school experience where the programme fits the student’s needs rather than the student being forced to fit the programme’s needs.
