"An AICE Diploma is awarded on the basis of examination scores and course work performance during seven full-credit courses. By requiring students take a minimum of seven full-credit courses with at least one course chosen from each of the three subject areas (Language, Mathematics & Science and Arts & Humanities) and Global Perspectives, the AICE Diploma ensures that all students follow a broad and balanced academic program. Within this framework, AICE offers an extremely flexible curriculum which can be tailored to students’ interests, abilities, and future plans. Every AICE test that is passed also awards the student college credit.
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."
