The International Academy, or IA, is a high school located in Bloomfield Hills, Oakland County, Michigan, with additional campuses in White Lake Township, Michigan and Troy, Michigan. It is a public, tuition-free school of choice (although selection is by a lottery) for students across Oakland County, with about a dozen school districts (including Bloomfield Hills, Berkley, Birmingham, Farmington, Lake Orion, Oxford, Rochester, Royal Oak, Walled Lake, and West Bloomfield districts) sending students to the central campus alone. Students are required to earn both high school and International Baccalaureate (IB) diplomas. According to IA, 95% of the Class of 2006 earned IB degrees. According to an article from 2004, 88% of enrolled students earn IB degrees. Both statistics demonstrate that IA's diploma attainment is well above both the North American average (78%) and the world average (81%) for diploma attainment. The school is officially hosted by the Bloomfield Hills School District. It was founded at the initiative of Lambert Okma, now principal, who previously taught economics at Bloomfield Hills Lahser High School. Mr. Okma is one of the main proponents of IB education in the state of Michigan, and it has helped to promote the IB program not only by opening satellite campuses, but also by encouraging other districts to start their own IB programs, with significant success (Bloomfield Hills made its Lone Pine Elementary School and West Hills Middle School/Andover High School official IB schools for the Primary Years and Middle Years programs respectively, and Saginaw Heritage High School is an example of one school which added an IB program after having its juniors sit in on IB classes at the International Academy).
