Mission Statement

Grounded in Chinese culture and nurtured in the IB spirit of internationalism, AIC students become active, globalized citizens who gain entry into diverse universities worldwide.


Through a rigorous and student-centred program, we offer the IB philosophy of learning and world citizenship to our community. Students are challenged by a dynamic program

of active learning that engenders in them scholarship and a belief that they can make the world a better place.


We strive to consistently support the IB Mission through our actions:

  • Provide a diversity of powerful international education experiences to our students,
  • Make learning student-centred and experiential,
  • Use the school and surrounding community as powerful resources for learning,
  • Actively promote 'Global Citizenship' in our students through engagement on issues that impact their lives and those of others,
  • Promote sustainability as one of our key values.

Core Values

  • AIC is a student-centred school where individual student interests are of paramount importance.
  • AIC creates a safe and supportive learning environment.
  • School practices are economically and environmentally sustainable.
  • We value the uniqueness and diversity that individuals bring to our community of learners.

'Achieve, Inspire and Create' is the AIC motto. At AIC we expect our students to achieve excellent results, both academically and personally; to inspire others and be inspired by others, and then to go and help create a better world.
