Apply for Central IB programs by Dec. 1 deadline

Applications are now open for the Central High School International Baccalaureate Diploma and Career-Related Programs. The IB Diploma and Career-Related Programs are rigorous, internationally recognized college-preparatory pathways for highly motivated students.

Springfield Public Schools students who wish to participate in either program pathway may apply for admission through the Central High School website by Dec. 1. 

Admission is based on middle school grades, middle school counselor recommendations, and a brief essay.  Students will be notified of their admission status by Dec. 11.  Families who reside in the SPS district but are not within the Central High School attendance area must also apply here for a high school transfer for their student through the SPS website between Nov. 2 and Dec. 1.
