Welcome to the Home of the Belleview High School
Cambridge AICE Program Homepage!
The AdvancedInternational Certificate of Education (AICE) program is an international pre-university curriculum and examination system for academically able students. AICE is internationally recognized as a university-level qualification and is committed to a flexible curriculum with global acceptance while maintaining the academic rigor that is a keystone of Cambridge. The AICE program of study offers students one of the most demanding and rigorous college preparatory programs in the world. The AICE program at Belleview High School includes a partial pre-AICE program (as well as individual AICE courses) for freshmen and sophomores with advancement to the full AICE program during the junior and senior years.
An AICE Diploma is awarded on the basis of examination scores and course work performance during six full-credit courses. By requiring students take a minimum of six full-credit courses with at least one course chosen from each of the three subject areas (Language, Mathematics & Science and Arts & Humanities), the AICE Diploma ensures that all students follow a broad and balanced academic program. Advanced (A) Level and Advanced Subsidiary (AS) Level certificates listing subjects passed are issued to those students who do not earn the full diploma. Within this framework, AICE offers an extremely flexible curriculum which can be tailored to students’ interests, abilities, and future plans.
The AICE program is an innovative and accelerated method of study offered through University of Cambridge International Examinations(CIE), a division of University of Cambridge, Cambridge, England. For over 170 years the prestigious University of Cambridge has been setting worldwide curriculum standards through their examinations. 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, and the state’s Bright Futures program recognizes AICE diploma recipients who also complete the required community service hours with the Florida Academic Scholars Scholarship. Belleview High School is proud to be one of the first high schools to offer the AICE program in the United States.
