General info

Non-public High School has been operating within the structures of Cracow International School since 2019. We are a high school that implements:  

  • Cambridge International program International IGCSE and Cambridge Advanced (As&A Level) (you can find more information in Core curriculum tab). 
  • Polish curriculum implemented by the Ministry of Education (you can find more information in Core curriculum tab). 

Bilingual High School Cracow International School is officially accredited by the Cambridge Assessment International Education organization and has been registered as an International Examination Center PL027. This means that we are fully authorized to implement Cambridge curricula and conduct international As& A Level final exams. We have received official approval from the Minister of Education to create so-called international branches at the school. 

We are also authorized as a public school under Polish educational law. This means that students of our school can follow the Polish core curriculum and prepare for Polish Matura exams.   

The main language of instruction at the school is English – that’s why our high school is an ideal choice for students who want to develop their language skills and educate themselves in an international environment. 

Starting in the 2024/2025 school year, students in the first year of high school will choose their high school education path. They can join a class with a full Cambridge program or choose a class with a Polish core curriculum and expanded English. This arrangement allows students to be fully prepared for the final exam of their choice – the Polish Matura or the Cambridge International As&A Level Exams.   

Only from the second grade (in the case of the Polish Matura class) or the third grade (Cambridge class) do students make their choices of exam subjects. This arrangement gives them more time to think about their plans for their future educational path.
