Rigorous & Authentic Educational Program

Rigorous & Authentic Educational Program

Cairo American College is a premier international school in Cairo, Egypt. CAC's classrooms, programs, curriculum, and teachers promote and deliver a rigorous and authentic educational program that leads students explicitly and implicitly to activism and pursuit of positive contributions to their community, while encouraging them to excel to their highest level of achievement. Students engage in real-world, project-based learning experiences that afford them the opportunity to learn how to use their knowledge and skills to make a positive difference in their school, neighborhood, country and/or world. Learning at CAC is engaging because students know it matters; it is exciting because students know they are making a difference; it is fun because it happens collectively, cooperatively, and collaboratively.
