CAS Introduction

CAS as an IB Diploma requirement

Schools are responsible for confirming with the regional office that all diploma candidates, at the end of the two-year program, have satisfactorily completed the CAS requirement of the IB Diploma Program. Schools must report unsatisfactory performance to the regional office. Failure to meet the CAS requirement will normally result in no diploma being awarded. A student who fails to satisfy this requirement is given one additional year in which to do so, after which the diploma will not be awarded, even if all other diploma conditions have been satisfactorily fulfilled.

“You must give time to your fellow man—even if it’s a little thing, do something for others—something for which you get no pay but the privilege of doing it.”  Albert Schweitzer

Young people studying the IB Diploma strive to be:

* Inquirers * Knowledgeable * Thinkers * Communicators * Principled * Open-minded * Caring * Risk-takers * Balanced * Reflective
