The Extended Essay is the capstone of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma program. It is an independent research paper guided by a subject adviser and supported by the librarian and the IB coordinator. Each student enrolled in the IB Diploma program begins the Extended Essay in the fall of their junior year and completes it by the spring.
The extended essay is an independent, self-directed piece of research, finishing with a 4,000-word paper.
One component of the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) core, the extended essay is mandatory for all students.
