How to Apply for Admission to CHS IB

For current 8th graders seeking admission to CHS IB, the online application system will be available on October 1, 2017 at the following address: https://magnet.cobbk12.org. The application system cannot be accessed until October 1st.

Students should complete and submit their online application for the CHS IB magnet program. All instructions are listed in the portal. Students will need to have a valid email address that you check frequently because all instructions and communications will be done via email. Remember that you will be submitting names and email addresses for the four teacher recommendations, and you should check to be sure you enter that information correctly so they get the notice from the application system. Teachers will receive the notice about recommendations once you submit the application, and they have until mid-January to submit their references.

Private/home school students are able to complete the online application as well. In addition to the application, we will need you to submit an official academic transcript from 7th and 8th grade that includes all grades and standardized test scores. This information should be obtained by the student/parents and submitted to CHS IB c/o Mr. Penick in January so that we have all the information to make informed admissions decisions in February. If you are applying to more than one magnet program, you only need to send ONE copy of the transcript to one program–we can all see the same data so there is no need to duplicate it for multiple programs. In addition to sending the transcript, private/home school students will also take a PSAT on Saturday, December 2, 2017 at Wheeler High School. By completing the magnet program application, a student is automatically registered for the PSAT, so there is no need to register or do anything else. This admissions exam is only used for the magnet application process. If you have questions, please email Mr. Penick.

All applications must be submitted by the end of the day on December 1, 2017; anything entered into the portal after 11:59 PM on Dec 1st cannot be accepted. Please be sure to click the SUBMIT button on the last page to be sure your information is entered completely. Email Dan Penick, the IB Program Coordinator, or call CHS IB at 678-842-6856 if you have any questions or problems with the application.

The Open House for all students and families interested in the IB Diploma Program will be held on THURSDAY, October 5, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. in the Livingston Auditorium at Campbell High School. If you were unable to attend the Open House event, please contact the IB Coordinator, Dan Penick, to make alternate arrangements for a visit to the school.

Interested students and families can also access the IB Information and Support page on Facebook to ask questions about the program, Campbell High School, and the application process. Our current students, parents, and faculty members are happy to respond to your inquiries about the IB Program, the application process, magnet school choices, and Campbell High School.

Campbell IB Booster Club Update

We are headed into the homestretch of our Inaugural Capital Campaign. The campaign will end on Wednesday, November 8th and we will announce the total amount raised after that date. Despite making great strides, we have not yet reached our goal of $75,000. With only 21% of families donating to date, it is hard to achieve a lofty – yet attainable – goal. There are currently 509 students in IB; our goal of $75,000 breaks down to $147.35 per student. All we ask is that you give what you can as every bit helps. 100% participation is something we can all be proud of! As we seek to secure donations from companies and larger foundations, it will be important to show our parental support.

If you have already donated and would like to pick up your donor level gift, we will have them available at the pot luck dinners.
