Inderkum Scholars leading to the IB Diploma Programme


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 were due on February 28, 2015. You still may submit an application and be added to a waiting list if you qualify. 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 information first.
