The International Award (IA)
The IA is organized and led by Owen Haywood, and CAIS has been registered as a Duke of Edinburgh's International Award centre. The first cohort of IA students entered the IA programme in the Fall of 2019. Students are engaged in hiking and camping and the final evaluation includes a student led overnight expedition.
CAIS provides a broad, holistic educational experience for all students that includes opportunities to develop interests and passions in outdoor activities. The Outdoor Education programme includes hiking, mountain biking, camping and snow sports.
CAIS is developing a series of Expeditions. Thanks to the advice and help of the experienced Scuba Diving trip leaders at Yokohama International School, CAIS teacher Paul Bergot planned and organized the first CAIS scuba diving expedition which took place in early November 2019.
