"CAS enables students to enhance their personal and interpersonal development by learning through experience.

It provides opportunities for self-determination and collaboration with others, fostering a sense of accomplishment and enjoyment from their work.

At the same time, CAS is an important counterbalance to the academic pressures of the DP."- From the IBO

CAS Requirements for the IB Class of 2022

IB Class of 2022: Please make sure to join the CAS Google Classroom to receive updates and CAS assignments for TOK. The CAS Google Classroom code for the IB Class of 2022 is 2g3sh5e.

Below is the CAS Handbook which includes detailed requirements, the CAS Proposal, and all other necessary forms. 

Due to constraints caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and to provide more well roundedness, CAS guidelines have changed from years past. Students should engage in CAS about 1-2 hours per week over the course of 18 months. While there is an hour requirement, it is the quality of activities that matters most. CAS experiences should challenge the student, allow for personal growth, and meet one of the CAS Learning Outcomes (listed in the CAS Handbook).

CAS Project Requirements

1. Students must complete 25 hours under the Creativity strand, 25 hours under the Activity strand and complete a CAS Project with a total of at least 50 hours under the Service strand that is sustained over at least a month.

2. Students must be involved with CAS experiences on a regular basis over the course of 18 months starting the first day of their junior year.

3. Documentation of hours, reflection, and evidence must be done in ManageBac. Each CAS experience must include a reflection, piece of evidence, and be verified by your supervisor. The CAS Project must include 3 reflections, 3 or more pieces of evidence, and be verified by your supervisor.

4. CAS reflections must include all reflection components listed on page 6 of the CAS Handbook.

5. All 7 learning outcomes must be demonstrated through evidence and reflections. 

6. You must have 2 formal interviews with the CAS Coordinator and complete a final presentation/interview senior year during the CAS Fair.

7. You must follow the guidelines for what is considered CAS (refer to page 3 of the CAS Handbook or see CAS Coordinator).

All CAS Documentation is due January 31st, 2022.

Students will receive assistance with documentation and the implementation of their CAS Program through their TOK class.
