Our English curriculum is based on the AERO standards and in Grades 11 & 12 we offer the IBDP English Literature course. In addition, we have courses in American and World Literature as well as Creative Writing. The English team works to ensure diverse and inclusive voices are represented through our text selections and task design. The English team embraces the Harkness methodology of discussion-based learning and our classrooms are equipped with large Harkness tables for this purpose. We are seeking an educator to help our students develop their skills in critical thinking, analytical writing, and interpretation. If this sounds like the kind of program and environment you could thrive in and contribute to, we’d love to hear from you.

We are extremely fortunate to be located in Egypt, a country that provides incrediblly rich offerings for exploration, from palentology to archeology, geology to marine biology, there is more to explore than most people will be able to see during their time posted in Cairo. CAC's field trips and Egypt Culture curriculum aim to expose CAC stu...dents to the wonders of this incredible nation. Currently, residents of Cairo are able to witness the birth pangs of democracy--an amazing educational opportunity in itself.
