 Welcome to the BHS Cambridge AICE Program!

AICE is the Cambridge Advanced International Certificate of Education

The Cambridge AICE Program offers a rigorous international Pre-university curriculum and examination system which emphasizes the value of broad and balanced study for academically advanced students. Students can earn college credit for passing scores in every AICE Level exam they take.  AICE courses are among the highest level, and most rigorous courses available to students in St. Johns County School District and across the world.

The Cambridge Advanced International Certificate of Education (Cambridge AICE) is a group certificate that requires learners to study subjects drawn from three curriculum areas within Cambridge International AS & A Level: mathematics and science, languages, and arts and humanities, over the course of three years. For students seeking the AICE Diploma, there is also a compulsory core subject, Cambridge International AS Level Global Perspectives & Research, in addition to a community service/paid work requirement of 100 hours.

While we are excited to offer this program as the newest AICE school in St. Johns County Schools, Cambridge International AS & A Level qualifications have been taken by over 175,000 learners in nearly 130 countries every year.

Who is an AICE student?

(Admission Requirements)

FSA/FAST Reading = level 4 or above (3 minimum), FSA/FAST Math = level 4 or above (3 minimum)
Advanced/Honors level Middle School Coursework, Grades = A/B Honor Roll
Positive Teacher Recommendations (4 core academic classes from 8th grade)
Highly motivated for academic success—focus on college readiness and post-secondary plans
Dedicated to academic studies—ability to keep up with homework, study skills
Organization—ability to balance rigorous coursework and academies, sports, extra-curricular activities
No major attendance or behavioral issues
*Note: Requirements are holistic in nature and no ONE requirement should serve as a disqualifying factor (i.e. a single FAST score of <3 will not serve as a disqualifying factor in program acceptance).

Beachside High School opened its doors to students and faculty in August of 2022 and is the newest high school in St. Johns County.
As the newest high school in SJCSD, Beachside has developed a unique and purposeful set of academy and advanced academic offerings providing our students with the knowledge and skills essential for post-secondary success and career readiness.
The AICE Program at Beachside is the newest Program of Choice and provides students access to advanced, college-level curriculum accompanying their general or academy course of study.  We opened our doors with a cohort of 51 AICE freshmen, excited to begin their three-year process of obtaining the AICE Diploma. AICE has been selected at BHS as a way to provide our students flexibility in their academic course offerings while challenging students through a rigorous, in-depth curriculum designed to engage students in real-world problem-solving and critical thinking through an international perspective.
