A-Level section is organized into four groups. 'Group' in LACAS is a class of students who share a similar combination of courses that fit their career choices and appropriate for their academic lifestyle. During the freshmen orientation, all students are required to initially select four or five courses from one of the four groups.
'Formal assessments' and assignments/coursework are scheduled regularly and the grades are included in the end of term report. Examinations are held at the end of each academic term/semester. All these factors contribute to the scoring of a given course in an 'Academic Progress Report'. 'Parent Teacher Meetings' (PTM) are scheduled every term where the progress of each student is discussed in detail.
Students from each grade are sorted in three houses: Iqbal, Jinnah and Sir Syed.
|Colours||House||Named after||A Level Section Head|
||Blue||Iqbal||Muhammad Iqbal||Nadira Tamkeen|
||Green||Jinnah||Muhammad Ali Jinnah||Yusra Moazzam|
||Yellow||Sir Syed||Sir Syed Ahmed Khan||Abid Hassan|
A house point system is in place that enables House rankings. At the end of each year, the house with the most points receives the House Trophy, in the Excellence Awards Distribution.
