CIC offers an international-based curriculum: Nursery through Grade 12. The Elementary School has a seven-period day. The Secondary School schedule has four 85-minute blocks each day, which make up a two-day 8 period block schedule. We recognize that students have different learning styles and learn at different rates. One way we have addressed this is to implement a Transition Program. Students benefiting from this program are referred by teachers for remediation in reading, 10 writing, language, and math. Transition assistance is either a push-in or a pull-out design, depending on the nature of the student’s needs.
Students are provided with a wide selection of co-curricular activity offerings, including homework clinic, reading workshops, various fine arts offerings, computer, and sports. To meet our goals of providing more Venezuelan and Latin American curricular offerings, CIC has added additional courses in Venezuelan Social Studies and Latin American Studies.
In addition, all students in Grades 1 - 10 take Spanish classes and a curriculum for Venezuelan Social Studies is being developed for all students in Grades 1 - 12 that will become a part of the Spanish classes. To address our desire of having a better balance between academics, fine arts, and sports, course offerings have been added in drama, music, and fine arts appreciation.
Our balanced co-curricular program provides an important dimension to our overall program outside of the regular school day. Activities are available to all students in Grades 1 - 12. All full-time and many part-time teachers offer activities. Activity offerings are clearly communicated to parents through a newsletter sent home and written parent permission is required. There is a clearly defined set of guidelines for off-campus trips, and there is an eligibility policy for all secondary activities, including benchmarks for academic performance, conduct, and English language usage.
