General Information and Programming

As the largest school district in Western Canada, we offer a depth and breadth of programs and supports to meet the unique learning needs and interests of an increasingly diverse population. We focus on personalizing the learning experience so that each student is engaged, inspired and learning to their full potential.

​Students in CBE have access to rigorous and robust academic and complementary programming at their community school.

Programming

Along with our excellent regular program offered at our community schools, we offer several program options to suit the unique learning needs, interests and abilities of your child. All of our programs follow the Alberta Programs of Study mandated curriculum. Choose the best option for your child.

High School Course Guides

In high school, students explore new ideas, develop additional interests, build relationships, and pursue their goals. CBE high schools work together and with community partners to give students more flexibility in accessing a wide variety of programs, courses and learning experiences.

High school information guides, including the Detailed High School Course Guide, and other high school specific information can be found in High School Success.​

May My Child Attend a School Other Than Their Designated School?

CBE's Administrative Regulation 6090 | Student Registration and Admission directs the conditions under which a student may be accepted at a non-designated school.
