AICE Program Overview

Applying for college has become more challenging and more competitive than ever before. Colleges and universities give priority to those students who have challenged themselves by taking rigorous courses during their high school years. There are several options for students who wish to accelerate to college-level learning during their high school years, one of most recognized being the AICE Diploma.

The Cambridge Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE)  is an internationally recognized diploma awarded to high school students for the satisfactory completion of a series of academically rigorous courses and exams created and administered by Cambridge International Examinations. The courses and diploma are an acceleration mechanism, meaning it gets you ready for hard college classes at a more rapid pace than traditional coursework. 

AICE involves studying college-level material before you graduate high school. The classes are challenging and tend to be narrow and specific in focus, narrow in on particular subjects and going into depth on topics covered; the AICE Diploma entails an extremely specialized program of study.

With AICE, there are a multitude of subjects to choose from across four different groups:

Group 1: Mathematics and Sciences Group 3: Arts and Humanities
 Examples: Environmental Science, Biology Examples: History, English Literature
Group 2: Languages Group 4: Interdisciplinary/Skills-Based
Examples: Spanish, English Examples: Thinking Skills, General English Paper
