Miami-Dade Schools announces large expansion of Cambridge program

Miami-Dade County Public Schools on Wednesday announced a sweeping expansion of its partnership with the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom.

During the next three years, the school district is expanding the number of Cambridge programs from the current 20 programs in 16 schools to 100 programs in 86 schools. The expansion will bring the international curriculum of the Cambridge International Examinations, a not for profit that is part of the renowned university, to elementary, middle and high schools.

Superintendent Alberto Carvalho was scheduled to appear Wednesday morning with Cambridge International Examinations CEO Michael O’Sullivan at G. Holmes Braddock Senior High to make the announcement. The program offers a rigorous continuum that stresses analysis, problem solving and communication skills.

Students who earn a Cambridge Advanced International Certificate of Education diploma can be awarded college credit or advanced standing at the university level, as well as a Florida Bright Futures Scholarship.

Through the agreement, teachers will receive online and face-to-face training.
