International Baccalaureate Program
The International Baccalaureate program is a comprehensive and rigorous college-preparatory program designed to meet the needs of academically talented and highly motivated high school students. Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization in Geneva, Switzerland may offer the IB curriculum and allow their students to sit for IB examinations in hopes of earning an IB diploma. IB Students follow a prescribed course of study in six disciplines, sit for examinations in each discipline, and fulfill additional requirements of the program. Students enrolled in IB schools take the same curriculum and sit for the same examinations.


Internationally recognized as one of the most challenging college-preparatory curricula available, this prestigious program is offered in over 2,729 schools in 138 countries. IB students are assured that their courses of study conform to world standards, not merely local, state, or national standards. The student who fulfills IB's expectations demonstrates a strong commitment to learning, in terms of both the mastery of subject content and the development of the skills and discipline necessary for success in a competitive world. Students successfully completing the program earn the IB diploma and may earn college credit and advanced standing at colleges and universities around the world.

CAS Opportunity - Wichita Children's Theatre
Students and Parents! We need your help! We need volunteers to help make Trick or Treat Street (TOTS) a success!

TOTS is a safe, non-scary Halloween theme charitable event for children under 10 years of age. Children are encouraged to come in costume and “trick or treat” at doors along an imaginary street. Costumed volunteers distribute novelties, candy and sponsor-related items at each door.

This fun experience has been the only annual WCT & DC fund-raiser for many years. Recently, we’ve added an original musical production, a clown, face painting, storytelling and kid-friendly games.

For all of these, we need volunteers (service hours awarded)– in a non scary, non revealing costume – to distribute candy, help with kids’ games, serve pizza at select shows and assist as needed. Here are the shifts we are looking to fill:

Friday, October 26 – 6 p.m.-8 p.m.

Saturday, October 25 – 10:00am.-noon

Saturday, October 25 – 12:30- 2:30 p.m.

Saturday, October 25 – 2:30.-4:00 p.m.
Sunday, October 26 - 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.

If your group is ready to be part of the fun, please contact me, Emily Scott, volunteer coordinator, at to sign up. It would be best for you to collect all of the names and shifts of your volunteers and send them to me all at once. You may also contact Belinda Kerschen at the WCT & DC office at 262-2282 for more information.

The event is held at Wichita Children's Theatre on Lulu. If someone is volunteering all day Saturday, please pack them a lunch if they do not have a car.

CAS submissions affects college visits
Any IB student, submitting "request for absence" for college visits will find it being DENIED if their CAS documentation is not current. It is my belief that IB students are completing CAS, yet a majority are very lax in completing the documentation and submitting it for review. In an effort to influence students to submit their documentation in a timely manner, the above procedure/practice will be instituted. Timely submissions is defined "within the semester". For example, if a student wants their college visit "excused" for second semester, then CAS documentation needs to have been submitted at least by the previous semester. Once a college visit has been denied and the visit has occurred, a later submission of CAS documentation will not reverse the "unexcused" designation. It is my intent and hope that this procedure will be incentive enough for many students to submit their delinquent CAS submissions.
