Cambridge is an advanced studies program for students that builds skills, knowledge, and understanding in English, Mathematics and Science. The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of the most advanced learners with an emphasis on creativity, innovation, and scholarly discourse.
Because RAMS is part of a larger network of schools, students have the opportunity to continue their studies in the AICE program in high school, where they can receive college credit. Many of the students who continue with AICE in our network, go to college as a sophomore, thus completing one year of post-secondary studies before they leave high school.

Why are AICE courses and the AICE Diploma important?
American universities have responded enthusiastically to AICE. The Florida Legislature has identified AICE as a graduation option and acceleration mechanism through which students can be awarded up to 45 hours of college credit at all public universities and colleges in Florida. Students earning the AICE Diploma qualify for the maximum Florida Academic Scholars tuition scholarship (with the completion of the required number of community service hours) and are not required to meet the minimum GPA and SAT/ACT testing scores.
Why should students enroll in AICE courses?
The AICE program of study at Bell Creek Academy offers students one of the most demanding and rigorous college prep programs in the world.

Regardless of the option chosen, enrollment in these rigorous courses will benefit BCA students in the college application process.
