Requirements for AISB High School Diploma
The minimum requirement for students who have been enrolled in AISB since the beginning of ninth grade is to accumulate 24 credits distributed among the academic departments as listed below. One further requirement for an AISB high school diploma is computer literacy, which may be obtained through a computer applications semester course.
Additionally, all students are expected to carry out C.A.S. (Creativity-Action-Service) projects and complete a C.A.S. portfolio for each year they attend the school. Service is an important part of our curriculum and students must contribute in a satisfactory manner in order to graduate. The CAS program is described in more detail at the end of this Program of Studies.
From a scheduling perspective, it is important to know that students in grades 10-12 have the option to sign up for one semester of a CAS block during which time they will be able to work towards completing the CAS requirements.
