What is Cambridge?
The Cambridge Secondary 1 Program is an innovative and accelerated method of academic study offered solely through the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). The Cambridge Academy Magnet is headed by a team of dedicated highly qualified educators who instill global educational standards within a professional learning community.
The “Cambridge Secondary 1” program offers a flexible liberal arts curriculum with Checkpoint Exams which provide an external international benchmark for learner performance. Global benchmarks are infused throughout Language Arts, Science, and Mathematics classes. Students will learn to gather data through research and testing, as well as to document and communicate their results. The emphasis of this program is on creating awareness of future global needs, developing technological competence, and increasing students’ communications capacity.
