    Important information to consider before you apply: 

    • Intradistrict School of Choice students do not need to submit an additional application for school of choice as it will be granted with acceptance to the IB programme. Transportation is not provided for school of choice students and all classes are at FHS. All students must be able to get to and from Farmington High School without the aid of the district.
    • Section 105 Oakland County Resident School of Choice students need to complete the proper application and be approved to attend FHS prior to completing the IB Diploma Programme application below. (11th Grade Oakland County School of Choice for IB will need to provide transcripts to confirm the student has met the minimum requirements to enter the program during 9th and 10th grades.)
    • Current FHS 9th or 10th grade students should contact Mr. Miesner and/or their counselor prior to applying to the IB Diploma Programme to ensure they have the prerequisites to enter the full program. 

    When is the deadline to complete the IB Diploma Programme application for the 2022-23 school year?

    • FPS students: Applications can be submitted at any time, but to insure proper scheduling for next year, we ask that you have it completed by Sunday, 3/5/23. (This date is specific to current 8th Grade FPS students. The scheduling timeline is different for other groups of students. Please contact kevin.miesner@fpsk12.net if you are unsure of when to apply.)
    • Section 105 Oakland County School of Choice students: Applications must be submitted at the same time as the SOC application. The deadline for this is February 10, 2023 (all required documentation is required at that time, including a current transcript). Please complete your application process through the School of Choice section of the Website.
