• IB Application


    To submit a complete application, you will need to complete the google form (below) with two short essay responses and two teacher recommendations. We recommend writing the essays in a separate google doc, proofreading them, and then pasting your responses into the application.  You will be asked for your two recommending teacher's name and email address, and we will submit a recommendation form on your behalf.  As a best practice, you should speak with the teacher who will evaluate you before receiving the form from us.
