​Regular Program at the CBE

Even though most of our schools offer a regular program, no two are quite the same. All schools teach according to Alberta Education’s mandated curriculum, however a school’s focus, optional courses and school activities are as unique as every school.​​​

Homework Guidelines

CBE policies suggest that families set aside some regular time each evening for home study. The amount of time varies from 5-10 minutes in Division I, to 20 minutes in Division II. We strongly encourage children to read each night, either with an adult or independently.

Circle of Courage at Chaparral

The Circle of Courage is a set of shared values and common language that we believe must be present in order to unify our learning community. These shared values include belonging, independence, mastery and generosity. The Circle of Courage is intended to engage all members of our learning community fostering self-esteem, a sense of self-worth and inclusiveness.
