The Cambridge programme is a very challenging programme that prepares students for life in the 21st century. Students do not just learn a body of knowledge but acquire skills.
They are able to access, process and evaluate information in this age of technology. They become accustomed to weighing up the worth of different viewpoints to reach balanced conclusions.
Students are constantly challenged and are taught critical thinking and problem solving. During the duration of the programme they develop confidence,
responsibility and are encouraged to be more reflective about how they learn. Over time, students are able to become more independent using assessment feedback to set personal targets for improvement.
They become more resilient, dealing at times with failure but learning from it, taking a long-term view of their educational development. There is also a strong sense of the importance of social justice in the Cambridge philosophy.
Students are encouraged to make a difference in local communities, as well as internationally. Students become more “internationally minded”, capable of understanding global issues from different perspectives.
Becoming a Cambridge School- What does the process of inspection involve?
Although the Academia Internacional started Cambridge courses as of August of 2016, in order to have the right to advertise itself as a Cambridge School and to become an official examination centre, the school will have to pass an inspection scheduled for June 6th. 2018.
The Cambridge inspection team will assess the whole school in the following areas:
The school’s mission and educational values.
School management and leadership.
Quality of teaching and learning.
The physical environment of the school.
Legal requirements such as government approval to operate and health and safety policies.
