Advanced International Certificate of Education Program (AICE)

Advanced International Certificate of Education Programs

Middle School Program (Cambridge Secondary 1)

Cambridge Secondary offers a flexible curriculum with integrated assessment. Typically for 11-14 year olds, Cambridge Secondary develops learners' skills and understanding in Mathematics, English and Science for the first three years of secondary education. It builds on the foundations of Cambridge Primary, but it is not essential to have completed Cambridge Primary before beginning Cambridge Secondary. Cambridge Secondary provides excellent preparation for Cambridge Secondary 2 at the high school level. The curriculum sets clear objectives for the first three years of secondary education in English, Mathematics and Science, providing a natural progression from Cambridge Primary.

High School Program (Cambridge Secondary 2)

The Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) is an international pre-university curriculum and examination system. It is a flexible, broad based curriculum which is being 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 schools offer a Pre-AICE program (IGCSE) for freshman with advancement to the AICE program beginning sophomore year.

Upon completion of the program, students will:

  • Receive a diploma from their high school and the University of Cambridge
  • Earn the Florida Bright Futures 100% Tuition Academic Scholars Award
  • Earn up to 45 college credits

Completion of the AICE curriculum requires students to complete a minimum of six AICE courses and take the exams for each, with at least one course and exam being from each of the following three subject areas:

  • Math & Sciences: Biology, Math, Physics, Chemistry
  • Languages: English Language, French Language, Spanish Language
  • Arts & Humanities: English Literature, Geography, World History

These six courses and examinations are completed during the Junior and Senior years. Students who complete the curriculum and take the exams will be recognized as AICE Program Graduates.

AICE program students are exempt from taking HOPE, Economics and Art. However, if at any time students are no longer participating in the AICE program, these courses would have to be completed as a requirement for graduation.
