Secondary School curriculum
The breadth of academic pathways at PASCAL is unmatched by any other private school in Cyprus
We run a six-year Secondary day and boarding programme, leading to the Apolytirion, which can be enriched with a range of qualification options, including:
- GCE AS
- A Level
- International A Level
- The Diploma of The International Baccalaureate
- Individual Course Result of The International Baccalaureate
- Pancyprian Exams
Secondary School graduates receive an Apolytirion fully recognised by the Cyprus Ministry of Education, Sport and Youth as a secondary school leaving qualification. The Apolytirion is accepted for matriculation purposes by universities worldwide.
Students in Year 4 take IGCSE examinations in their major elective subjects. Students in Years 5 and 6 may take the GCE AS and A Level/International A Level examinations. Alternatively, they may follow the 2-year International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (available in Lefkosia and Larnaka), leading to the Diploma of the International Baccalaureate or Individual IB Course Result. Upon completing Year 6 successfully, all students receive their Apolytirion.
The IB Diploma Programme pass rate of PASCAL students is 100%. PASCAL graduates are accepted by their first choice university.
PASCAL graduates secure placements at the top UK, European, USA, and other worldwide universities based on the Apolytirion only - or the combination of Apolytirion and other secondary school leaving qualifications (GCE A Levels/IAL or the Diploma of the International Baccalaureate).
Our curriculum is recognised by the Cyprus Ministry of Education, Sport and Youth (MoESY).
Our schools are Cambridge Assessment International Education and Pearson Edexcel centres.
PASCAL Private Secondary Schools Lefkosia and Larnaka are IB World Schools.
Feedback is an integral element of how we operate. Students receive regular written and oral feedback from teachers, noting areas for congratulation and development.
Student progress reports are issued three times a year, in November, January/February, and June, to ensure students and their families know how they are doing. PASCAL has an open-door policy, and we are pleased to discuss your student or any concerns you may have between reports.
Full details for the breakdown of final marks per subject are detailed in our Study Guide, Rules and Regulations.
