For students in IB programmes, CAS hours are required for graduation. CAS stands for Creativity, Action, Service. You can complete CAS hours on Sol Abroad programs. Please provide us with any paperwork you may need completed. Make sure to coordinate with one of your school’s CAS advisors prior to starting the program so we can help you accomplish your CAS goals. The CAS requirement is a fundamental part of the IB programme and takes seriously the importance of life outside the world of scholarship, providing a refreshing counterbalance to academic studies. For more specifics please refer to the International Baccalaureate website.
Examples of Creativity, Action, Service on a Sol Abroad program:
Creativity includes a wide range of activities that involve creative thinking. Creativity provides students with the opportunity to explore their own sense of original thinking and expression.
Action is focused on getting involved in physical exertion that contributes to a healthy lifestyle. The aim of Action is to promote lifelong healthy habits related to physical well-being.
Service requires students to understand their capacity to make a meaningful contribution to their community and society. Through Service, students develop and apply personal and social skills in real-life situations involving decision-making, problem solving, initiative, responsibility, and accountability for their actions.
