​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.​​​

Discovering Choices

Discovering Choices is a Calgary Board of Education High School outreach program. We offer courses based on Alberta Education high school curriculum and work experience opportunities. Our enrollment includes students who are between 15 and 19 years old as of September 1.

Discovering Choices is also partnered with the Calgary Achievement Centre for Youth (CACY). Child minding is available at Discovering Choices (CACY).

The Calgary Achievement Centre for Youth is an environment for young adults that fosters greater self sufficiency by providing individualized achievement opportunities through the collaboration of several partners.

Courses

Personalized learning plans are developed for each student to complete Alberta Education High School requirements for graduation. These plans include a variety of instructional strategies that can be differentiated to meet student learning needs. Students work closely with their teachers to set a flexible time table to achieve their educational goals. Academic courses often include both midterm and final exams. Students can benefit from work experience and credit recovery opportunities.

​Dual Credit at the CBE

As a CBE student you may choose to take a dual credit program as part of your high school learning plan. Dual credit programs allow you to:

  • Study in an area of passion and interest
  • Get a jump start on post-secondary learning.
  • Earn high school and post-secondary credits (transferable).
  • Build confidence and develop skills that will support a successful post- secondary transition.
  • Experience a post-secondary learning environment and learn about on-going opportunities.
  • Reduce first year course load and the time required to complete a program.

As a dual credit student, you would be enrolled in both a post-secondary institution and in your high school concurrently. You would earn credits towards both a high school diploma and post-secondary degree or diploma.


Application packages and program details will be posted on:

​Exploring Career Choices

Career and Technology education provides CBE students with opportunities for personalized learning that are dynamic and support them to transition into education, training and work. It is a part of the Alberta Programs of Study, and is offered in every school, every day and for every student.
 
Career and Technology Studies (CTS) is a complementary program designed for our high school students. Students develop career and technology-related skills while enhancing employability competencies. Here is an overview of CTS pathways and Knowledge and Employability (K&E) Occupational Courses, and information on specialized facilities.
 

Career & Technology Centre at Lord Shaughnessy High School

The Career & Technology Centre (CTC) is a hub for CTS learning for students registered in CBE high schools across Calgary. Students who attend the CTC will take courses at their designated high schools, but they will also access the CTC to enhance their learning through credentialed, dual credit or pre-placement programs for specific periods of time.
