Advanced International Certificate of Education Programs

Middle School Program (Lower Secondary)

Cambridge Lower Secondary is typically for learners aged 11 to 14 years. It helps prepare students for the next step of their education, providing a clear path as they progress through the Cambridge Pathway in an age-appropriate way.

Lower Secondary Global Perspectives

Cambridge Lower Secondary Global Perspectives develops transferable skills that support learners in their studies and in their everyday life. These skills will support them in their studies in middle school and prepare them for advanced programs in high school and beyond. Learners develop skills through age-appropriate and engaging activities that are based on a broad range of topics. They explore personal, local, and global perspectives to make sense of, and feel connected to, the world around them. Learners make informed decisions about the information they read, hear and see on global issues, identifying different perspectives and arguments. At the end of lower secondary, students complete a Research Report, which integrates the core skills of the curriculum: research, analysis, evaluation, reflection, collaboration, and communication.

High School Program (Cambridge Pre-Advanced & Advanced)

The Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) is an international, pre-university curriculum and examination system. It is a flexible, broad-based curriculum that is offered worldwide in schools and colleges through the University of Cambridge Local Examination Syndicate (ICLES) in the United Kingdom. For over 160 years, the prestigious University of Cambridge has been setting worldwide curriculum standards through their examinations.

American universities have responded enthusiastically to AICE. The Florida Legislature has identified AICE as an acceleration mechanism that features courses written specifically as preparation for honors degree programs. It encourages high academic standards and provides an ideal basis for study at the college and university level.

The Cambridge AICE Program is intended for highly motivated, academically driven students. High school students begin by taking two to four AICE courses their freshman and sophomore year. We also offer a Pre-AICE program (IGCSE) for these students. Then by junior year, students are fully immersed in the Cambridge AICE Program at their high school.
