Delivering the Alberta Curriculum
CAIS utilizes the curriculum of Alberta Education, Canada at all grade levels. The Alberta curriculum has earned the accolades of tertiary institutions throughout the world due to the quality of students that are being produced in the province.
As an example, Alberta students ranked 2nd, 3rd and 5th in the world in science, reading and math respectively in a recently published results of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), a worldwide evaluation of 15-year-old school children's scholastic performance involving students from 57 different countries and regions.
A sound curriculum is important but even more important is the manner in which curriculum is taught. The School has adopted a student-centered, inquiry-based approach that emphasizes integration of technology across the curriculum. It is believed that this approach will serve students well in preparing for life after CAIS.
In addition, the high school program provides opportunity for students to enroll in a number of Advanced Placement courses that are counted towards the 100-credit Alberta Diploma requirement and, at the same time, are recognized by many universities and colleges world-wide as entry-level university credits. The Advanced Placement Program offerings are continuously being enhanced in response to student demand.
