The CCHS Mission Statement

With the support of families and the community, we will foster a whole student approach to learning and lead our students to success as inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring global citizens.

IB Programme Model

Group 1: Studies in Language & Literature

Group 2: Language Acquisition

Group 3: Individuals & Societies

Group 4: Experimental Sciences

Group 5: Mathematics

Group 6: The Arts & Electives

The DP Core: CAS (Creativity/Activity/Service); TOK (Theory of Knowledge) & EE (Extended Essay)

Through the DP core, students reflect on the nature of knowledge, complete independent research and undertake a project that often involves community service.

Completion of the IB course sequence replaces all graduation requirements in Florida. A program change requires that a student return to the home high school zone and meet standard Florida Graduation requirements. A Conference with the IB Counselor and the IB Coordinator is required prior to any program change.
