We at West Broward High are so excited to have been accepted as a Cambridge International School! Our Cambridge Academy students will partake in a college preparatory program that opens doors to competitive post-secondary institutions, invites scholarship opportunities and adds prestige to all of their future endeavors!!
What is AICE?
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 (CIE), a division of the University of Cambridge in Cambridge, England. The University of Cambridge is consistently ranked as one of the top five academic universities in the world! AICE provides a flexible, broad-based curriculum that is offered worldwide at schools and colleges in over 161 countries. For over 170 years, the prestigious University of Cambridge has been setting worldwide curriculum standards through their examinations.
Why are AICE courses and the AICE Diploma important?
American universities have responded enthusiastically to AICE. The Florida Legislature has identified AICE as a graduation option and acceleration mechanism through which students can be awarded up to 45 hours of college credit at all public universities and colleges in Florida. Students earning the AICE Diploma qualify for the maximum Florida Academic Scholars tuition scholarship (with the completion of the required number of community service hours) and are not required to meet the minimum GPA and SAT/ACT testing scores.
Why should students choose the AICE program?
AICE is not for every student. AICE students are seeking a challenging and rewarding accelerated program that will set them apart from all other students. The AICE program of study at West Broward High School offers students one of the most demanding and rigorous college preparatory programs in the world. After completing at least one course in each of three academic areas, students have the flexibility to choose a course of study that best meets their abilities and interests. Regardless of the AICE courses chosen, this rigorous course of study will benefit WBHS students in the college application process, in earning college credit prior to entering college and in qualifying for scholarship awards.
