The Advanced Programs Application Window is Currently Open


The Advanced Programs application window is currently open and will close on January 31, 2022.  Volusia County is excited to have two advanced programs for students to choose from:

International Baccalaureate Program at Spruce Creek High School and Deland High School 

Cambridge International AICE at Deltona High School, New Smyrna Beach High School, Pine Ridge High School, Seabreeze High School, and University High School

Cambridge AICE and IB offer students a college preparatory track that not only allows the student to earn college credit while in high school, but also gives the student the opportunity to earn an international diploma award which helps the student become more marketable for university acceptance and attain a Bright Futures Scholarship.

Further information on the Volusia County Advanced Programs can be found on the schools’ websites and on the district website

What is the application process?

Parents/guardians whose student meets the grade level requirements will be able to apply to one of the Advanced Programs through the Parent Portal. 

  • Students must be a rising 9th grader.
  • The Cambridge AICE and International Baccalaureate IB Application 2022 will appear for the parent under their child’s name in the left-side menu on their Parent Portal.
  • Select the Cambridge AICE or IB school program you wish to apply to. 
    • You may make only one (1) choice.
    • If your program of choice is also offered at your student’s zoned school, the student must attend the program at their zoned school.
