Patrick Henry High School proudly offers the International Baccalaureate Career-Related Programme (IBCP, formerly called the IB Career-related Certificate or IBCC) to our students. This unique and exciting opportunity for our 11th and 12th grade students brings together the mission, vision and philosophy of the International Baccalaureate with our Project Lead the Way (PLTW) - Engineering and Digital Media programs, creating an educational experience that is flexible to attend to individual student needs and interests and academically challenging to prepare students for the ever-changing world of work in the 21st century.
The IBCP at PHHS is coordinated by Brionna Harder, PHHS Social Studies teacher in partnership with David Sylvestre, PHHS PLTW Program Coordinator and CTE teacher. To learn more, call 612-668-1950 or email Brionna Harder at Brionna.Harder@mpls.k12.mn.us.
History of the IBCP at Patrick Henry High School
In December 2009, Patrick Henry High School received an invitation from the International Baccalaureate
Our first official cohort of students to complete the requirements of the IB Career-Related Certificate was a group of 5 students from the graduating class of 2014. Among the highlights of our first cohort was a meeting with Representative Keith Ellison. This, however, wasn't the first time that our students were able to meet and discuss a variety of topics with a government official. Our first IBCC Senior Build Team had a similar experience during the 2010-2011 school year during a visit with Senator Al Franken, who was equally impressed with the passion, brilliance, humor, perseverance and hard work.
