Interested in applying to the IB Program for September 2020?  

Please check our website under ADMISSIONS in October of 2019.  Our website will be updated with the Admission procedures and the online application at that time.  Our Grade 8 Information Night for IB will be held on TUESDAY NOVEMBER 19th 2019 at 7 pm at Cameron Heights.  This is the ONLY EVENING that this presentation will take place.  CHCI Guidance Counsellors will visit GRADE 8 SCHOOLS in the WRDSB during October and November to provide information for Grade 8 students during a Nutrition Break.  If you are a student at a Private School or in the Separate Board, we recommend you attend our Information Evening as well. This program is in high demand and we often receive far more applications than we have seats in the program.  Late applicants often can not be accommodated.

OVERVIEW OF THE IB PROGRAMME

The IB programme allows students to explore their personal and academic interests via the International Baccalaureate model. Depending on their post-secondary aspirations and learning goals, students have the option of completing individual IB courses or completing the full IB Diploma. Both program options are valuable and should be chosen based on individual student needs.  Please explore our “About”, “For Parents” and “IB Curriculum Summaries” Pages for a more detailed explanation of student options.
