    STEM Pathway

    Students may qualify for the STEM pathway by entering 9th grade with a satisfactory grade (C average or higher or 4 average or higher in Algebra 1 + 3 or higher on OST) or by accelerating through the CIHS acceleration pathway after 9th grade after meeting the same requirements and getting a recommendation from their 9th grade teacher. The CIHS acceleration pathway includes taking the first semester of Geometry online during the summer and the second half concurrently with Algebra 2 during the 10th grade year.

    Group 6 Pathways (9th - 10th Grade) 

    Standard Pathway: 1/2 Design + 1/2 Physical Education - this option allows students to complete their Physical Education requirement as 9th/10th graders and open up their Year 4 in Group 4 to take an SL elective in Group 3, 4, or 6. Students must complete their arts requirement (at least 1 credit) during Year 3 or 4.
    Arts Pathway: 1/2 Design + 1/2 Music or Art Elective (Orchestra, Band, Modern Band, MYP Visual Arts) - this option commits students to 4 years of study in musical ensembles and the Music HL course in Years 3 and 4 or 4 years of study in Visual Arts and the Visual Arts HL course in Years 3 and 4. Student must complete their Physical Education course during Year 4 (group 4) or outside of the school day.
    Computer Science Pathway: the computer science progression integrates Design into Years 1 and 2 (Exploring Computer Science & Intro to Computer Science) leading up to an advanced IB HL course in Years 3 and 4. Students who take computer science will need to complete their arts and physical education requirements outside of the Group 6 progression.
    Entrepreneurship Pathway: the Entrepreneurship pathway begins in Year 2 with a full-year Design & Entrepreneurship course in conjunction with Youth Entrepreneurs. Students then move on to the Design Tech HL course in Years 3 and 4 as well as a Business and Management SL elective in Year 4.
    Students must meet "Promotion Criteria" year-to-year at CIHS in order to be promoted to the next year in the CIHS Academic Progression.
