University of Cambridge AICE Program The Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) is an international diploma that students can earn via an advanced academic curriculum and assessment program written and administered by a non -profit department (CIE) of the University of Cambridge in England. AICE program courses and examinations may be offered during grades 9 -12 in schools worldwide registered as CIE Centers. There is a pre. AICE, or International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), curriculum and assessment program available for grades 9 and 10, a Cambridge Checkpoint Program available for middle schools, and a Cambridge Primary Program available for elementary schools.
Is Cambridge a New Program in Florida? There are more than 65 high school Cambridge Programs in the state of Florida. All of our neighboring counties currently have either the IB and/or Cambridge Program for academically-talented students. Putnam County students are competing with these students for admissions to Florida universities.

Cambridge Advanced Studies Cambridge AICE not only prepares students to get into a university with college credit, but it also provides them with the skills required to be successful once there. According to a recent study published in the Journal of College Admission, Cambridge AICE students achieve a higher GPA on average than International Baccalaureate (IB) students. Colleges award credit on a subject–by–subject basis according to grades earned on individual examinations passed. All public universities and community colleges in Florida award college credit for AICE exams passed. Most universities across the United States including all Ivy League Universities recognize the Cambridge Program for credit.
The State of Florida recognizes Cambridge The Florida Legislature has determined the AICE Curriculum is a graduation option for students beginning with the graduating class of 2011. Florida graduation requirements are changing this year, but Cambridge (AICE) students will still enjoy the same benefits.
