IB CAS 11 and 12 is a self paced course that helps students apply citizenship, creativity and an active lifestyle with their academic endeavors. CAS involves the application of the IB Learner profile with the CAS learning outcomes. CAS (Creativity, Action, and Service) is one of the three core strands that make up the heart of the IB Diploma Programme. Students will work with a CAS advisor for 18 months where they are expected to complete activities, provide evidence and reflect on their chosen activities.
CAS advisors are there to help guide students and aid in their growth as active citizens.
- Creativity: arts, and other experiences that involve creative thinking.
- Action: physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle.
- Service: an unpaid and voluntary exchange that has a learning benefit for the student.
CAS should involve the following:
- Real, purposeful activities with significant outcomes
- Personal challenge—tasks must extend the student and be achievable
- Thoughtful consideration—planning, revising, reviewing, reporting
- Reflection on outcomes and personal learning CAS is about you and your journey through life.
