International Baccalaureate Students

Drew recognizes the value of students like you who have embraced the challenge of the IB diploma program. We know you will flourish with the additional opportunities we provide.

Drew Wants You.

We invite you to complement the ambitious, intellectual journey you started in the IB program with our classically inspired—but purposefully modern and customizable—approach to learning.

Study in New York City. Live in The Forest.

At Drew, the best of both worlds are yours to explore. New York City, a powerhouse world capital with career-defining internships and world-famous cultural destinations, is a 45‐minute train ride from The Forest, Drew’s 186-acre campus in the close-knit community of Madison, New Jersey. Enjoy semesters on Wall Street, at the United Nations, surrounded by contemporary art, or connecting with communications executives and media moguls.

Find your Yoda.

Being taken under the wing of Drew’s brilliant professors is like being mentored by Yoda. It’s one of the key ingredients in the success of Drew graduates: intellectual curiosity + faculty mentorship = catching fire and taking off.

Dollars and Sense.

Both domestic and international students may qualify for merit scholarships, which are based on previous academic achievements. These scholarships do not require any additional application.
