Introduction to the CAS Program

Tuesday, February 27, 2018

CAS stands for creativity, activity, service. All Diploma IB students must complete a CAS program. The CAS program includes documented evidence of participating in various experiences and at least one CAS project (minimum of one month’s duration) with a reasonable balance between creativity, activity, and service.

CAS encourages students to be involved in activities as individuals and as part of a team that take place in local, national and international contexts. Creativity, activity, service enables students to enhance their personal and interpersonal development as well as their social and civic development, through experiential learning, lending an important counterbalance to the academic pressures of the rest of the IB Diploma Program.
 
This blog is a chance to highlight the wide variety of CAS experiences that our students pursue as part of their Diploma. Please check back from time to time to see the exciting happenings our students are involved with.
 
We are also seeking input from the Woodcroft College community to promote opportunities to our Diploma students that they may not be aware of. If you feel you have information or an opportunity for students to be involved in, especially in the service aspect, please do not hesitate to contact me via e-mail.
