As a boarding school, we know that all children are different and would ideally like to meet you and your child, allow you to experience the school and get to know you all so that we fully understand your needs. However, we have students from over 40 countries already studying with us, so we know that it isn’t always easy to come and visit the school. This is why we have created a process where you can find out everything you need to know about the school from our website.

We look forward to welcoming you.

CAS Activities

The EMIS CAS program places students at the center of their own learning experiences, allowing them to discover for themselves what passions motivate them, where their strengths lie, what weaknesses they have to overcome and what gives them a real sense of purpose in this world. Here at EMIS, we believe fully in our mission of Making Education a Force for Sustainability and Peace in the Middle East, and this is embedded throughout our CAS curriculum, particularly in the service element, where students are exposed to local issues in the community and take the initiative to create volunteering opportunities for themselves and their peers. Our students’ commitment to volunteer in under-privileged communities demonstrates the use of education as a way of improving the life of others. CAS is an inseparable part of both EMIS and the IB programs, providing an important counterbalance to the academic pressures of the DP. It is designed to enhance the development of students in their personal and interpersonal growth by learning through experience. Meaningful CAS experiences not only develop personal skills and competencies, but also contribute to communities. As CAS is an individual-based program. Students choose their own activities and projects, according to their interests, aspirations, and preferences.
