CAS should be fun and also challenging – it should allow students to enhance their personal and interpersonal development. It should encourage learning through experience! This is why our Alpine CAS trip is a perfect fit for Pre IB- and Mid IB students!

  • Pre-IB students will be introduced to IB CAS (Creativity, Activity and Service) and focus on their chosen CAS activities and duties.
  • Mid-IB students will focus on their various CAS duties, as each day’s experiences will include activities that allow them to address ALL the essential learning outcomes required of the program.

Time for reflection is built in for all, with a focus on the 21st century skills such as collaboration, problem solving, decision-making, self-management as well as “giving back”.

You can combine this trip with up to 4 MID IB subject revision sessions on our campus in Vienna. More details to this trip you will find under ‘Alpine CAS Adventure’ in menu point ‘Our Courses‘…
