International Baccalaureate program hosting Academy Day Oct. 27

Lincoln High School is proud to host a morning of information sharing to help middle school parents and students understand what the International Baccalaureate program is and why it is a premier experience for high school students around the world. Sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students and parents are invited and encouraged to attend this event so you can learn more about this incredible program and consider whether IB might be a good fit for you. (Register for the event here.)

This year’s Academy Day will be Oct. 27, from 8:00 a.m. until noon and will have breakout sessions related to each of the six core subject areas represented in the IB Diploma Program. Students are asked to pick their top four choices and will receive three of their four choices on IB Academy Day.

These sessions will be conducted by IB subject area teachers along with current and former IB students. Each breakout session is structured to not only give students a better understanding about some of the topics and ideas covered in our classes, but will also provide a means for middle school students to interact with our IB teachers and students in a hands on experiential manner.

The parent portion of the program will consist of an informational session conducted by J.P. Caruso, our IB Diploma Coordinator. Several breakout sessions will follow the presentation including: a panel discussion with current IB students, an academic 4-yr plan overview with our IB Counselor, IB and Universities, a presentation by Asst Dir of Admissions Ellen Sundermeier from UNL, and Q & A Sessions with IB Teachers.

Check-in will begin at 7:30 AM with Coffee, fruit, and bagels. The formal start of the day will begin promptly at 8:00 AM. We expect the day to end around 11:30 AM.

Because of the size and scope of the day's events, students and or parents are asked to arrive before 8AM. Parents are not required to attend with their student, but are encouraged to do so. If you have any additional questions please contact J.P. Caruso at or 402-436-1301.
