What is IBDP CAS? 

The Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) component of the International Baccalaureate is part of the core requirements of the IB Diploma and at the heart of the Diploma Program.


Participation in the IB CAS program encourages students to become involved in creative pursuits, physical activities and service experiences in the local, national and international context. Whilst mandatory, CAS will form some of the best memories and experiences for every student.

What are the CAS strands? 

Evidencing CAS experiences 


The 3 strands of CAS, which are often linked with specific activities, are characterized as follows:

  • Creativity – Music, performance, visual arts, writing, coding, design, and other experiences that involve innovation and a creative output. 

  • Activity – Any activity that improves your physical, emotional and mental well-being and contributes to a healthy lifestyle. Links to impact on academic work elsewhere in DP is a plus

  • Service – Unpaid, voluntary work that has a learning benefit for the student. The rights, dignity and autonomy of all those involved are respected.

All students are expected to participate in CAS activities for approximately 2 to 4 hours a week during their two Upper School years.
