The CAS programme at JBCN has been uniquely and thoughtfully designed at various levels to ensure deeper understanding and lasting influence on its learners. Typically, a student’s CAS programme combines planned/unplanned singular and ongoing experiences, covering various categories.

They can be categorized as follows-
  • Flagship Projects- where students take up one or two projects as a long term goal and actively participate in a planned, sustained and collaborative manner to reach the objective within the academic year.
  • Clubs- where they explore new possibilities, embrace new challenges and adapt to new roles and understand they are members of local and global communities with responsibilities towards each other and the environment.
  • Day Activities- where they undertake single or two day projects regularly, thereby learning dedication and adopting community service or sport as a part of their everyday life.
