Academics

Belvedere is an International Baccalaureate World School, and our students participate in the Primary Years Program. Through the program, students become internationally-minded thinkers, inquirers, and problem solvers. The curriculum is inquiry-based and encourages students to take an active part in their learning. It empowers students to use their learning to take action in helping to create a better, more peaceful world.  We also follow the FCPS Program of Studies.
