welcome to colegio internacional de caracas,
situated safely above the noise and bustle of downtown Caracas. As an international English-instruction institution with over 100 years of educational excellence, we thank you for your interest in our school.
From our youngest 2-year-old students to our graduating seniors, our community is committed to providing the best not only for each student, but also for their families. Whether it be learning, volunteering, after school activities, intense English support, or university counseling, we assure excellence in all that we do.
Our school is internationally accredited to deliver the International Baccalaureate Middle Years and Diploma Programmes, and offers a United States-certified graduating diploma. Instruction is in English, and all students receive instruction in English Language, Maths, Sciences, Social Studies (Individuals and Societies), Arts, and much more – with all instruction being supported by a student laptop program, tablets, and in-class technology.
Our physical campus is inspiring and offers incredible views of El Avila, hosts many species of birds and plants, and provides a feeling of peace and focus. Our teachers are a blend of English-speaking international and Venezuelan teachers who have strong credentials to deliver the best in international education.
Our school has been delivering quality education here in Caracas since 1896. Originally called Colegio Americano, the school merged with Academia La Castellana in 1971 and took the name Colegio Internacional de Caracas, or The International School of Caracas. CIC has a proven record of academic excellence and leadership among international schools in Venezuela. We were early adopters of the International Baccalaureate Diploma and Middle Years Programs, which have built a world-wide reputation for rigor, high standards, an international perspective, and effective university preparation. Through generous consultancy and collegial collaboration, CIC’s curriculum is being implemented at many of the smaller international schools around the country.
Today, we host many programs that include English as an Additional Language, Robotics, Circuitry, A Maker Space, a generous library and Learning Center, a all-weather sports field, numerous playgrounds, and so much more. However, it is our community of learners of which we are most proud. Our students are exceptional human beings, and our parents are uniquely supportive. Together with our staff, CIC is a learning community that is rare to find in this part of the world.
