"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others." - Mahatma Gandhi


"It is an inside vibration; it is how and not how much." - Maria Piaggio

Creativity, Action, Service (CAS) is a non-examined component of the Diploma Program which emphasizes experiential learning.  Over the two-year program you must engage in activities outside the classroom and develop a number of personal skills achieving the eight learning outcomes given by the IBO. CAS activities should continue on a regular basis for as long as possible throughout the program, and certainly for at least 18 months.

What is CAS?

  • CAS is about taking risks, exploring, challenging oneself, and personal development
  • CAS is a framework for experiential learning.
  • CAS is designed to involve students in NEW ROLES and to learn NEW SKILLS.
  • Although there are three elements – Creativity, Action, Service, it is important NOT to consider them as mutually exclusive.
  • It is based on the philosophy of the International Baccalaureate program – learning beyond the classroom.
  • CAS learning is achieved by doing real tasks that have real consequences.
  • CAS work is a reflective process, evaluating experiences and learning over time.

CAS aims to develop students who are:

  • Reflective thinkers - to understand your own strengths and limitations, identify goals and devise strategies for personal growth
  • Willing to accept new challenges and new roles
  • Aware of themselves as members of communities with responsibilities towards each other and the environment
  • Active participants in sustained, collaborative projects
  • Balanced - to enjoy and find significance in a range of activities involving intellectual, physical, creative and emotional experiences
