German International Abitur (DIA)

AvH is the only German school in Canada to offer students the opportunity to complete grade 12 and obtain the German International Abitur, providing an alternative to the CEGEP/college system in Quebec.

What is the German International Abitur (DIA)?

The German International Abitur (or Deutsches Internationales Abitur, known as “DIA” for short) is an internationally-acclaimed college preparatory curriculum and diploma that provides an academically exceptional and culturally rich multilingual education to students of all nationalities and backgrounds.

By inspiring inquisitive, open-minded, independent thinkers with a robust, internationally-oriented and well-rounded curriculum of languages, sciences, mathematics, and arts, the DIA opens doors to the finest colleges and universities and creates a world of opportunities for its graduates.

The DIA is endorsed by Germany’s Federal Foreign Office, the Central Agency for Schools Abroad (ZfA), and the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs of the States of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Over the years, excellent results have been achieved and graduates have been accepted to some of the most competitive universities in Canada (such as McGill, Université de Montréal, Queens University), in Germany (Karlsruhe University, Heidelberg University, University of Erlangen Nürnberg), in England (London Business School), in Australia (University of Perth), and in Hungary (German University of Budapest) etc.
