​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.​​​

Connect Time

Students are provided a time to connect with their connect teacher. Each Friday from 10:00 to 10:40 AM.

Purpose of Connect Time:

  • To get to know our students as learners.
  • Provides students with the ability to manage their high school experience through credit and course planning and to collaborate with their Connect teacher on individual high school/ post high school goals. While the Success Center is available for more specific information and individualised support and intervention, Connect teachers, classroom teachers and Success Center teachers all work together on helping students navigate and establish a graduation plan that is suited for each student’s best interest after high school
  • To evolve digital student learning plans.
  • To come together and build relationships and community.
  • To work through CALM outcomes with in a wellness framework

Success Time

Success Time is scheduled Monday to Thursday from 10:15 to 11; 00 AM. This time frame helps flexible learning environments, increased student engagement in learning, improved student achievement and enhanced teacher practice. This is Nelson Mandela High School’s shift in moving forward with high school design.

Purpose of Success Time:

  • Teachers from the community help students by providing enrichment and regular interventions for learning – special projects across subjects, extended labs/presentations, and small group instructions.
  • During Success Time students have scheduled access to teacher experts for support and enrichment.
  • Attendance is mandatory and recorded.
  • Students check in with their connect teachers at the beginning of the success time for attendance and head to their choice of activity while teachers may direct student choice for scheduled tutorials or assignment completion.

​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.
