The Cambridge Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) Diploma is an international curriculum and examination system that emphasises the value of broad and balanced study. Alongside in-depth understanding of a variety of subjects, students also need to master a broader range of skills critical for success in university study and employment.
The Cambridge AICE Diploma was first awarded in 1997 and has since become popular with a range of schools in different parts of the world. It encompasses the ‘gold standard’ Cambridge International AS and A Level qualifications, and offers students the opportunity to tailor their studies to their individual interests, abilities and future plans within an international curriculum framework. The Diploma is made up of individual Cambridge International AS & A Levels, which have widespread international standing as educational qualifications.
By demanding knowledge from three different subject groups, plus the core compulsory subject, Cambridge International AS Level Global Perspectives & Research, the Cambridge AICE Diploma provides a broad curriculum with a balance of maths and science, languages, arts and humanities, and interdisciplinary subjects. It maintains flexibility and choice by allowing students to choose subjects at different levels.
Why Troy High School students should choose Cambridge AICE
The Cambridge AICE Diploma pathway at Troy High School offers one of the most rigorous pre-university programs in the world. Students have the flexibility to choose a course of study that best meets their abilities and interests, while also completing at least one course sequence in each of the three subjects groups.
Students have the option of taking individual Cambridge A Level courses and their subsequent exams in order to earn college credits without pursuing the full AICE diploma. Regardless of the path chosen, enrollment in these rigorous courses will prepare students for post-secondary studies.
