What is AICE?

AICE, which stands for Advanced International Certificate of Education and is pronounced like the word "ace," is a set of challenging college-level classes for high school students. It was developed by Cambridge Assessment, a non-profit, non-teaching department of the University of Cambridge in England. 

Like the AP and IB programs, AICE was designed to give students the option to pursue a more rigorous and ambitious curriculum by teaching you key skills to succeed in college-level work. At the same time, AICE classes and the diploma structure are flexible enough to let students tailor the coursework to their specific interests and strengths.

Besides the academic and intellectual appeal of learning in greater depth, AICE lets you earn an advanced diploma to boost your college application. It also has the potential to get you college credit or let you place out of intro courses once you're a freshman.
