Inderkum Scholars leading to the IB Diploma Programme

Welcome!

As of February 27, 2014, we are fully authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. We're also well underway in gaining authorization for the Middle Years Programme (grades 6-10) in conjunction with Natomas Middle School. You can read more about our authorization here.

Scholars is an honors program to prepare students in grades 9 and 10 for the rigors, breadth and depth of the IB Diploma Programme. Students apply to be part of the program and are scheduled in accelerated classes taught by IB-trained teachers.

Applications for the Class of 2019 are due on February 13, 2015 (priority) and February 28*, 2015 (final deadline). If interested, please apply as soon as possible. There is a "how to" document at the bottom of the page, and the application link is at right. If you're interested in joining us for the Classes of 2017 or 2018, please email for info first.

For further information, see the flyers available below. If you have questions, please feel free to email me using the link at left or directly at jdowning@natomas.k12.ca.us


* I apologize for some confusion about due dates. On 2/12, I found out that an older version of this page was displayed. I'm not sure when the switch happened, but I've since learned that ClassJump changed to a new server and some pages didn't survive the move. It was one of those fluke events that unfortunately wasn't noticed at a rather critical time. You really do have until 2/28.
