​Every student who is new to the CBE needs to register at their designated school. Everyone has a designated school based on their home address and the program they choose. You can find your designated school by using our Find a School tool.

To register, please:

  1. Complete the Student Registration Form

  2. Bring the registration form, original copies showing your child’s proof of age and legal name (birth certificate, passport or court documents) and proof of your address (the principal may ask to see one or more of the following: driver’s licence, municipal/federal correspondence, financial/residential documents or a utility bill) to the school

To confirm school attendance areas or program offerings or for more information about registration, please contact us directly.

You can find detailed information about high school planning, courses, completion and more on the CBE High School Success page. ​​​​​​​​

Knowledge & Employability Registration Procedures

Students are usually recommended for Knowledge and Employability Courses (K&E) by their present school. School counsellors, administrators, and classroom teachers make their recommendations and submit names of possible candidates to Jack James. Parents may also initiate admission procedures as their school of choice.

Registration forms are submitted by the student’s through Jack James counselling sessions at the junior high schools. The status of each application is decided upon and communicated to the school and parents.

Registration forms may also be submitted during the school year. Parents are contacted with regard to informed consent.

Although Knowledge & Employability Courses are an excellent opportunity for learning, they may not be appropriate for all students. Information from the student’s last school is essential in determining whether K&E are in the best interest of the student. Parents should become very familiar with K&E and how they differ from the regular program before making a decision for their child.

Tours and information sessions for students and parents are held to help them with the decision regarding courses.
