The Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) program is an international pre-university curriculum and examination system for academically able students.  It is a flexible, broad-based, two-year curriculum, which is offered worldwide in schools and colleges.  AICE features courses written specifically as preparation for honors degree programs.  It encourages high academic standards and provides an ideal basis for study at the college and university level.  The AICE program at Bay High School includes a pre-AICE program for freshmen and sophomores with advancement to the Advanced International Certificate of Education program during the junior and senior years.

An AICE Diploma is awarded on the basis of examination scores and course work performance during six full-credit courses.  By requiring students take a minimum of six full-credit courses with at least one
course chosen from each of the three subject areas, the AICE Diploma ensures that all students follow a broad and balanced academic program.  Advanced (A) Level and Advanced Subsidiary (AS) Level
certificates listing subjects passed are issued to those students who do not earn the full diploma.  Within this framework, AICE offers an extremely flexible curriculum which can be tailored to students’
interests, abilities, and future plans.

The AICE program is an innovative and accelerated method of study offered through University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), a division of University of Cambridge, Cambridge, England.  For over 170 years the prestigious University of Cambridge has been setting worldwide curriculum standards through their examinations. American universities have responded enthusiastically to AICE.  The
Florida Legislature has identified AICE as a graduation option and acceleration mechanism through which students can be awarded college credit.  Students earning the AICE Diploma qualify for the Bright
Futures Florida Academic Scholarship.  Students completing the curriculum can earn the Bright Futures Florida Medallion Scholarship. Students who complete the AICE curriculum will be provided the best
possible foundation for advanced post secondary studies anywhere in the world.  Bay High School is proud to be one of the first high schools to offer the AICE program in the United States.
