Hi Sabine,

I live in Philadelphia, and my daughter is an IB student in middle school. According to the official IB website listing, the answer is no. I'm giving you the link below, so that you can see which schools DO have the program, and at which age level. Please do not let this discourage you. Chestnut Hill academy is a top notch school all the way around the block, and they are very focused on college prep.

Excellent question. You will need to contact the school directly to find out what college prep courses are available.

What is your time frame of when you will be moving here? Are you in touch with a local Realtor? If not, I would be willing to assist you in all your needs. I am just outside of Philadelphia.

I also speak German, if it helps.
