All Boys Program at the CBE

Is the All Boys Program the Right Choice for My Child?

A successful student demonstrates:
  • a desire to learn in a single gender setting
  • a willingness to be actively engaged in a learning environment that focuses on the academic, physical, emotional and social needs of boys 
  • a willingness to take risks in their learning 
  • a desire to understand themselves as a learner

Characteristics of the All Boys Program

  • Builds on boys’ strengths to create an optimistic culture and an encouraging learning environment where boys will understand themselves as learners 
  • Fostering self-confidence as boys understand how to be a resilient learner and critical thinker 
  • Daily Physical Education program, instructed by a K-6 Physical Education specialist 
  • Development of leadership characteristics through authentic contribution to the school community 
  • The natural curiosity of the male learner is leveraged through intentional task design 
  • Enriching their learning and the curriculum through the use of residencies, exploration of community resources and off campus experiences that make the connections authentic for boys 
  • A school community that recognizes the necessity for classroom environments that support male learners (movement breaks, tall desks, alternative seating, assistive tools) 
  • Alberta Programs of Study through an instructional approach that best meets the learning needs of boys 
  • Infusion of technology to support the demonstration of learning
