The MUN club provides a challenging

and enriching forum for students to discuss current international issues and to view those issues from different perspectives. Members are chosen and trained in the Spring semester and may have the opportunity to attend a conference prior to the end of that school year. Tryouts are held during the latter half of the Spring Semester for the following year. Additionally there is another tryout session at the start of the year for new students to CAC. The club meets every Tuesday evening from 5:15 - 7:00 pm to practice debate procedures, resolution writing and to learn about their assigned countries and issues. CAC also hosts an international conference for three days each October (CACMUN) which features five forums and a Plenary experience: The Disarmament Forum, Human Rights and Environment Forum, The Security Council, The Disarmament and Economic Security Forum, and the International Court of Justice. Students from schools in Egypt as well as International School in other countries participate. A team of student officers, and committees from the club membership, assist in the organization of the conference. CACMUN is affiliated with The Hague International Model United Nations, the largest high school MUN in the world. CAC is a valued participant in the five day THIMUN conference each January. A team of the most highly qualified MUN delegates is chosen to take part in THIMUN. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in NHSMUN New York, the MUN conference hosted each year by National High School. During this conference students will perform at the actual UN Headquarters building.

For information about registration for CACMUN please see our CACMUN facebook page.

Our group’s mission is to promote

and protect human rights around the world. We seek to educate ourselves about human rights issues and to act on them by writing emails and/or letter to world leaders asking them to promote and protect human rights in their respective countries. Several times throughout the school year we hold letter writing campaigns at lunch in order to educate our peers on a pressing human rights issue and give them a way to act on it. Our vision is of a world in which every person - regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity – enjoys all of the human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

and sell this product to the greater Cairo community. INJAZ is one of the most popular clubs at CAC for a reason.  Our teams have been very successful over the past several years. In 2011 CAC won 1st place in a national competition and thereafter represented Egypt at an international competition in Dubai.  In 2013, our team was recognized at a national competition for having an outstanding marketing department.  With this legacy of success, our goal is to win the national competition each and every year.

The Academic Games teams practice, plan and prepare for competitions in our region in teams consisting of 4 students, one of whom must serve as the Team Captain.

Annually we select 8 students per level to represent CAC on 2 teams in each of the JV and Varsity regional tournaments, so 4 teams in all. Participants on the teams are as follows: JV players are limited to grades 8-10 and Varsity players are limited to grades 9-12. Competition includes 15 minute bowl rounds where general knowledge questions which may be academic in nature or about experiential learning, such as first aid skills or medical conditions or world discoveries, for example; from general awareness in their lives. Teams are asked questions and then have 7s to buzz in and 15 seconds to confer before giving answers. Every team member has their own buzzer. Additionally, the competition contains 5 Olympiads at the JV level and up to 7 at the Varsity level where teams are challenged with tasks regarding Music, Fine Arts, Current Events (within the year from previous to current tournament date), Engineering, Geography, Spelling and Mathematics. The format may be images with questions or musical clips, or in the case of Engineering, each team receives a box or plastic zip lock bag of random materials and a paper indicating a task to build something to serve a particular purpose. This is an extra-curricular activity for kids who are cool for all the right reasons.
JV Academic Season ends on November.
