Pursuits offers students the opportunity to combine individual IB, Advanced Placement, and High School Diploma courses to create their own program of study and take a deep-dive into areas of distinction. Students have the opportunity to apply their learning in an authentic environment outside the classroom setting.

Areas of distinction include: 

  • Business and Marketing
  • Computer Science
  • Engineering and Design 
  • Global Issues
  • Health and Wellness
  • Interdisciplinary
  • Multimedia Communications
  • Performing Arts
  • Sports Science
  • Visual Arts
  • World Language 


Area of Distinction

Based on interests and ambitions, students select one speciality area upon which to focus in Grade 11 and 12, taking a set of courses related to that area.

Applied Learning

An opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and skills in a learning experience outside and traditional classroom setting.

Self-Directed Learning

Two semester-long courses of self-directed study related to their Area of Distinction.

Students are encouraged to speak with ISKL’s High School Counseling Team about the admissions criteria for universities to which they would like to apply as these may vary between universities in different countries.
