What is AICE Cambridge 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. Visit https://www.cambridgeinternational.org/about-us/ for more information.
Benefits of the AICE program and the AICE Diploma
The AICE Diploma is as a graduation option and acceleration mechanism through which students can be awarded college credit based on the level of the AICE courses and the passing of 7+ AICE examinations (specific to the designated Cambridge criteria). Students earning the AICE Diploma qualify for the Florida Academic Scholarship, the highest level of the Bright Futures Scholarship Program, with the completion of 100 community service hours; and are not required to meet a score minimum for SAT/ACT.
AICE vs. Other Accelerated Programs
Cambridge AICE students will be writing at an advanced level and will take college-level exams thereafter. Writing is an essential element to the acceleration program, with written college-level examinations (different from some other college-level exams). College acceptance of specified credit transfer varies.
For the upcoming ERH school year, limited courses** and placement will be offered for AICE. Students must complete an application – then interview, if selected. A limited number of students will be selected for a cohort group entering 9th grade. For all other students, future opportunities for courses may be available; application deadline still applies.
