Hall County Schools open their IB schools to non-residents

If you’d like to give your child the chance to study the International Baccalaureate curriculum, but don’t have access to an IB school, Hall County has announced it is taking applications from rising high-school juniors who live outside the county for its three IB high-schools: Johnson High School, North Hall High School, and West Hall High School.

The IB Diploma Programme is a rigorous, challenging curriculum. Completion of the IB Diploma can translate into college course credits at many major colleges and universities.

Students from anywhere are welcome to apply, but all out-of-county students must pay tuition of $1,500 for the year, plus the cost of IB exams. Also, parents must provide transportation to and from the school.

Limited spaces are available. According to Sally Krisel, the director of innovative and advanced programs for the county, if a school receives more applicants than it has open seats, it will first review all the applications and select the students who are most highly qualified. If there are more equally qualified applicants than available slots, the spaces will be filled by lottery.

Application deadline is July 7, 2012. Applications are posted on the web sites of each of the schools.

For more information, read the announcement on the Hall County Schools web site, or contact Sally Krisel at sally-dot-krisel-at-hallco-dot-org (address deconstructed to help prevent spam).
