Welcome To Carleton College
Welcome to Carleton College International School, an Authorised K-12 IB and American World School purpose built for 21st Century Conceptual Learning here in Shorouq City, Cairo, Egypt. We are currently accepting applications for Pre-K to Grade 9 for the Academic Year 2023/2024.
Design, Engineer, Construct (DEC)
Carleton College is proud to announce that we will be true first school in the country running the Design, Engineer, Construct (DEC) curriculum courses from Grade 6 to Grade 9 in the coming year as part of our MYP aligned Design subject. The DEC is a British programme which focuses on the built environment. Construction, engineering and design are some of the most sought after careers in Egypt today. DEC Awards are small projects that immerse children and young people in the exciting world of the Built Environment – they learn to design, engineer and construct a range of buildings and structures, from restaurants, hotels and live music venues, to riverside facilities, village schools in Uganda and even their own ‘Centre for Our Planet’ to teach young people about climate change. Fully supported STEM/STEAM projects DEC Awards can be used in a variety of ways. They’re perfect for use in school clubs and other STEM enrichment activities, during term time or in the holidays!

Carleton is part of the ACE Umbrella of schools and together with our sister IB schools is known for their rigorous academic programs and focus on developing well-rounded students.
The IB program emphasizes critical thinking, intercultural understanding, and a global perspective, which can be beneficial for students as they prepare for higher education and the workforce.
We place a strong emphasis on extracurricular activities and community service during school, providing students with opportunities to develop leadership skills and give back to their communities.
We also place strong emphasis on identity and protecting the traditions, language, and culture of our beloved country, Egypt, whilst learning to appreciate other cultures and places. With both character education and counselling departments, we don’t just teach young people, we raise them.
I llike that I learn in the school. I don’t want to go to another school because everyone is nice and the teachers help us. Everyone is caring and play with me!
Carleton College school has been our choice when we landed from outside Egypt after being an expatriate for almost 7 years, what we really appreciated is the sense of diversity and inclusion. Also they are maintaining a positive relationship with the parents through keeping an effective channel of exchanging feedback. They share regular updates in children’s performance throughout the academic year. Despite being an international school, we have noticed a huge care about the religious and morals in life. I really appreciate everything they are doing 😊

I couldn’t be happier with our school I am seeing a great progress in my son’s development and education. The whole staff is extremely helpful and attentive.
Learning for exams is a dated philosophy which does not serve young people or help prepare them for the world they will inherit. Learning for progress does.
What we learn is reflected in our ACTIONS. When we learn the good, we do the good. So we choose what we learn carefully.
We learn about others and accept that we are different. We don’t follow. We lead. And we are not afraid.
