IB applications for Diploma Program students will be accepted on a continual basis. Students can apply to the IB Program as early as 8th grade. Once the application, teacher recommendation forms and student responses are received, the IB leadership team will schedule informal intake meetings with students and parents to discuss the courses the student will take and the additional requirements that may need to be met. Students are not committed to entering the IB program if they complete an IB application earlier than their 10th grade year. Additional teacher recommendations may be required in 10th grade and a formal plan will be established during registration for 11th grade courses. Students who want to participate in individual IB classes do not need to apply.
