CAS – Creativity, Action and Service
The International Baccalaureate Organization (IB) created the Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS) requirement to encourage students to establish life-long habits that will make them well-rounded human beings and contributing global citizens. The CAS requirement reflects the commitment of NIHS and IB to the understanding that important learning takes place not only in the classroom, but also outside of it. “CAS enables students to enhance their personal and interpersonal development through experiential learning.” CAS should be both challenging and enjoyable, and offer students a personal journey of self-discovery.” (IB CAS Guide).
In making a CAS plan and completing, recording, and reflecting upon CAS activities, NIHS students should keep in mind and respect both the purpose and the spirit of CAS. Students should conceptualize and complete CAS projects that will contribute significantly to their personal growth.
