The IBHS AICE Program
The Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) Program features a broad-based, international curriculum which emphasises a broad-based, flexible, and balanced program of study. Through this pre-university coursework, students develop in-depth knowledge within a variety of subjects, while mastering a broad range of skills deemed as critical for success in university studies and future employment.
The Cambridge AICE Diploma is achieved when a student successfully completes (and passes the accompanying exams, with a score of A - E, for) a total of six individual Cambridge International AS & A Level courses, from across four subject groups:
Group 1: Mathematics and Sciences
Group 2: Languages
Group 3: Arts and Humanities
Group 4: Interdisciplinary subjects (optional)
Students must achieve at least one credit from each of Groups 1, 2 , and 3. A maximum of two credits can also be added from Group 4. Last, student must successfully complete and pass the exam for Global Perspectives & Research.

• Level 3 or higher on most recent FSA ELA and Math assessments
• Copy of student enrollment zone application receipt, online confirmation, or sibling assignment letter
• Copy of Quarter 1 Report Card and Quarter 2 Interim (if available)
Additional application requirements for students NEW to Lee County Public Schools:
• A new student is an enrollee from another Florida county, from outside of the State of Florida, or from outside of the country. Lee County Charter, Private or Homeschool students are considered current Lee County Students.
• End of the year report cards for the past two years and current report card, if applicable

Once accepted as an AICE student, it is expected that students maintain the academic expectations of each course. Advancement within the curriculum is contingent upon meeting the requirements AND earning teacher recommendations for EACH course.
Conversely, students enrolled in IBHS, but who are not currently taking AICE courses, may be recommended by their teacher for AICE coursework the following year, depending on prerequisite coursework.
