Time: 6:00 pm

After an arduous four-year application process, Centennial High School is proud to be named an International Baccalaureate® (IB) World School, one of only two in North Fulton County and one of only 4,500 around the world. The school has been authorized to offer the IB Diploma Programme for 11th and 12th graders, aged 16-19. Classes will be offered in August at the start of the 2018-2019 school year. Those students graduating in the class of 2020 will be the first cohort benefiting from this prestigious program that strengthens a world-view education and differentiates students not only in the college acceptance process but their future careers as well.

The IB Diploma Programme (DP) aims to develop students who have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge—students who flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically. The DP curriculum is made up of six subject groups and the DP core, comprising Theory of Knowledge (TOK), Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) and the Extended Essay. Through the DP core, students reflect on the nature of knowledge, complete independent research and undertake a project that often involves community service.

Future information sessions about the IB Diploma Programme will take place at the school over the coming months and these will be announced to the community. The Centennial IB program will be an academic hardship option for students attending Northview, Chattahoochee, and Johns Creek high schools. Parents are encouraged to contact Marchele Nelson NelsonML@fultonschools.org with questions.
