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 December/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.

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

We are 2/3 of the way into our Inaugural Capital Campaign and have raised almost half of what we need to achieve our year one goals. To date, we have received $30,280 in straight donations and are anticipating another $2,925 in corporate matching. While this amount is great, our participation level is low. Approximately 20% of families in the IB program have donated. Imagine what we can raise with 100% participation, or even 70 – 80 or 90%! Please consider contributing what you can. Every bit helps and your donation is 100% tax deductible. We have ambitious goals we want to achieve and your child/children will benefit.

Corporate Matching
Thank you to those donors who have already submitted their request for corporate matching funds. Make sure you don’t leave free money on the table! If you have any questions regarding corporate matching, please contact Denise Raymond at president@boosterclub.campbellib.org.

Reminder: 9th and 11th graders pay for PSAT by Friday

Just a reminder that all IB 9th and 11th grade students need to submit $16 to Ms. Adams in the IB office to cover the cost of the PSAT, which takes place on October 11th here at school. I’ve fielded a few questions about whether students should take it, and my response is always going to be “Yes” because it is a low-cost, low-stakes measurement to see where your student is. We have IB students take the test all three years (9th, 10th, 11th) to be sure they are ready for the SAT/ACT in spring of junior year. If you have any other questions, please reach out.

GT Women in Engineering

The Georgia Tech Women in Engineering Program is excited to announce the 18th annual Engineering Career Conference (ECC) for current female junior and senior high school students.

ECC is designed to give high school girls knowledge and information about the eleven engineering disciplines offered at Georgia Tech to help them decide if they’d like to study engineering in college, and, if so, which type of engineering is best for them.
This year’s ECC will be held on Thursday, October 5, 2017 from 8:30AM to 4:00PM in the Georgia Tech Student Center Ballroom.

Over the course of a day, prospective female students have the opportunity to hear directly from Georgia Tech’s world-renowned faculty and current Tech students about the various engineering majors offered at GT. In addition, attendees have the chance to meet with a GT Admissions Counselor to find out about the admissions process and the academic requirements necessary to be successful in engineering undergraduate programs.

The non-refundable registration fee for ECC is $25, which covers all materials as well as breakfast and lunch for each girl attending the program, and breakfast for parents or guardians and teachers.
The application link may be found at http://forms.coe.gatech.edu/content/ecc-application.
