Students have the flexibility to choose from 70 subjects in any combination. It provides excellent preparation for Cambridge Advanced and for progression to other educational systems.

The Cambridge Advanced curriculum is a 2-year course (AS and A-level) for students from 16 to 18. Cambridge Advanced will ask students to choose 3 to 4 options from all 55 subjects and focus on studying them for the final exam. It develops deep subject knowledge, conceptual understanding and higher order thinking skills. It is especially suitable for students interested in science and STEM studies.

The Cambridge A-level diploma is accepted by all English speaking universities in the world and also recognised by MEXT (文部科学省) in applying for universities in Japan.
