Dedicated community service is expected of every high school student. As part of the IB Diploma Programme, CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service) is a requirement to earn an IB Diploma. Students thus participate in creative endeavours (‘C’), physical activities (‘A’), and service activities (‘S’). According to the IB, the purpose of the CAS program is to develop strengths and weaknesses, build skills, learn how to plan, show determination, collaborate effectively, engage in global issues and consider ethics while making choices. Moreover, in order to complete the CAS requirements, students must complete an extended project of global scope that is typically based on service to the planet or community.
