Cambridge AICE Information
What is The University of Cambridge AICE Program?
The University of Cambridge AICE program is an international, pre-university program developed by the University of Cambridge in England. AICE examinations have been offered for over 50 years in more than 150 countries. AICE was first offered in the US in 1995, and officially adopted in Florida in 2001. PVCHS became an official Centre in August of 2010 as an avenue for Park Vista students to expand learning opportunities to increase learning for our global society. The AICE Diploma is awarded based on competence in seven subjects; however, students can take and be awarded for individual subjects. This advanced curriculum is designed as preparation for college and university programs.
What are universities saying about AICE?
Our study found that AICE program graduates attending the University of Florida had an average end-of-freshman year GPA of 3.46 whereas students coming from other acceleration mechanisms such as Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) had an average GPA of 3.12 and 3.10 respectively.

One of the things we find with students who have studied Cambridge International is that they have a real depth of understanding of the subject matter that they have had classes in, and a real engagement with it. Those are some of the things that we find really help our students succeed once they get to our campus.

The depth of knowledge displayed by the best AICE students makes them prime targets for America’s Ivy League universities.
