| CAS is an opportunity for students to CREATE KNOWLEDGE |
through the tranformation of EXPERIENCE.
This component of the IB programme is designed to help students learn through doing. Students learn to reflect on their activities so that they can better develop their sense of self and their role in their community. Over the two years of the diploma programme students engage in approximately 150 hours of activities that are creative, action oriented, or in service to others. Many students use activities they are already involved in, such as boy scouts or ballet classes. Each cohort of Diploma candidates will work on an annual project that has global significance. CAS is discussed more in-depth at the New Candidate Orientation meeting in the Fall.
