Students and parents interested in enrolling in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme will have a chance to gain more information at Central Academy.
Applications are being taken from current sophomores who will begin the program at the start of the 2013-2014 school year.
The meeting will be held on January 31st at 6 p.m. in the Central Campus Multipurpose Room.
The academy describe IB as “an academically challenging and balanced program of education for high school juniors and seniors.”
Students who successfully complete the two-year program earn an internationally recognized IB Diploma in addition to their Iowa high school diploma.
Gary M. Bell, Dean of the TTU Honors College at Texas Tech University says they give preferential treatment to students with the qualification, “The most substantial attraction for us is that the student who completes the IB program is certifiably motivated, hard-working, curious and conscientious. Nothing predicts college success better than those qualities.”
