Students' Life

Creativity, Activity, and Service

CAS is one of the core requirements of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma programme. As educating the person as a whole is at the heart of the CAS programme, its philosophy is based on experiential education that is of learning by doing. It gives learners many opportunities to become active citizens of the world by engaging in experiences at the local, national and/or international levels while contributing positively towards each other and the environment. It extends over a period of eighteen months to help students develop life skills to a live a purposeful life while countering the balance of the rigorous requirements of the Diploma Programme. Students take ownership of their own learning, pursue personal growth and play an active role in the learning process. They initiate, plan and immerse in meaningful life experiences, embrace new challenges, engage in collaborative CAS projects and critically reflect about the undertaken experiences. They take ownership of their own learning and pursue personal growth to develop new skills and sharpen transferrable ones that are key to academic success and life while gaining new perspectives and methods of thinking. The aims of CAS fit perfectly well with the mission statement and philosophy of education of Sagesse High School.
