Academics Overview

CIC Academics

CIC is an academic community which challenges and nurtures students. We strive to foster a love of learning in students, educating them to be effective communicators, critical thinkers and problem solvers.

We offer a proven American-style, international curriculum from PreNursery to Grade 5 and the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program to Grades 6-10. The IBMYP leads students into the IB Diploma Program for Grades 11 & 12, which we have been offering for about twenty years.

In addition to the core curriculum, the Elementary and Secondary Schools both offer courses in Technology, Visual Arts, Music, Drama, Physical Education and Spanish (as a native and modern languages). Secondary School students have additional language options as well. Students who are non-native English speakers and need extra assistance are served by our extremely well-qualified ESOL teachers. CIC accepts students up to Grade 8 without prior English language instruction.

CIC places students in some of the finest universities around the world through our comprehensive college preparatory program which includes the full IB program and the opportunity for AP Exams. CIC students who are fluent in Spanish are also eligible for entrance into Venezuelan universities through the Revalidas process.
