College and University Acceptances 2021

Friday, June 25, 2021

At The Benjamin Franklin International School, we have an outstanding record of academic achievement and a strong history of college placement success. Our International Baccalaureate graduate students have gained entry into a range of competitive colleges and universities worldwide. The majority of college applications and final destinations are for universities in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Holland and Spain, although countries such as Switzerland, France or Italy are also always present on the list. Please, see the list below for 2021 college acceptances and also view the the historical acceptance list from 2016-2021 here: College and University Acceptance 2016-2020

For the past five years, the average IB pass rate at BFIS is 99,4% which places the school among the top IB schools in Europe. Such an accomplishment is a reflection of a dedicated and committed faculty team who places the student at the center of all they do, it is also evidence of how the entire school community lives our school mission.
