High School

In high school, we prepare students for university and to make an impact on the world.

Our students develop critical thinking skills and become innovative problem solvers through our rigorous and challenging curriculum. Students in Grades 9 and 10 follow the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP), while LCIS offers both the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (DP) and Career-related Programme (CP) to students in Grades 11 and 12. All graduates earn the LCIS high school diploma and can personalise their studies with the IB course of study that best meets their goals. Read our school profile.

The IB Learner Profile

CAS is a framework for experiential learning that guides students through an exploration of new roles. Students must plan and complete a series of purposeful CAS activities with significant learning outcomes.
