Welcome to the Cambridge Program
What is the AICE program?
The Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) is an innovative and accelerated method of academic study offered solely through the University of Cambridge International Examinations, a division of the University of Cambridge in Cambridge, England. AICE provides a flexible, broad-based curriculum that is offered worldwide at schools and colleges in over 160 countries. For over 170 years, the prestigious University of Cambridge has been setting worldwide curriculum standards through their examinations.
An AICE Diploma
Is awarded on the basis of examination scores and course work performance during seven full-credit courses. By requiring students take a minimum of seven full-credit courses with at least one course chosen from each of the three subject areas (Language, Mathematics & Science and Arts & Humanities) and Global Perspectives, the AICE Diploma ensures that all students follow a broad and balanced academic program. Within this framework, AICE offers an extremely flexible curriculum which can be tailored to students’ interests, abilities, and future plans. Every AICE test that is passed also awards the student college credit.
