In November, 2015, Alma Bryant was given the honor of being named the first Cambridge International School in the state of Alabama.
The Cambridge Program is a rigorous, internationally recognized course of study for academically talented students. The program has been in existence for over 150 years and is under the auspices of Cambridge Assessment, a not-for-profit organization and part of the world-renowned University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, whose international qualifications are recognized by the world's best universities and employers, giving students a wide range of options in their education and career.
The first two years in the Cambridge Program are spent studying a broad curriculum of courses designed to emphasize the development of higher order thinking skills, oral and written skills, and extensive problem solving and teamwork while earning the International General Certificate for Secondary Education (IGCSE). The final two years are spent in the advanced program which is comprised of college-level courses leading to the Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) diploma.
