The Cambridge International Certificate of Education (ICE) program was developed as a complete curriculum to provide students with a solid foundation for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programs. It is based on syllabuses and subjects which are all taught in English except for Italian and a second foreign language.
To obtain the Cambridge ICE diploma, students must enter and sit for seven subjects from 5 different groups.
All subjects belong to the IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) list of subjects and are authorized by the University of Cambridge International Examinations.
Our school completes the program with the study of Italian language and literature both to ensure a more thorough preparation and to enable students to transfer back into the Italian school system, should they wish to.
