To gain admission to our IB program, you must go through the HCPS Specialty Center admission process. Please look below at dates for information sessions, open houses, and procedures. The application is now available in the link below, at the bottom of this page.
HCPS now offers students a choice in IB programs at the high school level. Students will indicate their preference on the application. Both high schools will host open houses, listed below, and we invite students and parents to attend both so that they may make an informed decision as to their preference.
