    The CAS Project

    In addition to the many CAS experiences listed above, each student must complete a month long (or longer) series of related experiences that follow all 5 stages of CAS during their Junior and Senior year at CIHS. A CAS project involves collaboration between a group of students or with members of the wider community. It is highly encouraged that students use this CAS project to gain hands-on knowledge and experiences around each student’s Extended Essay topic. Details surrounding the CAS Project will be covered in the student’s IB Core 11 and 12 classes.
