​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.​​​

CAT Time

CAT Time is:

  • The opportunity for students to receive help with the essential student learning outcomes (ESLO).
  • The opportunity to learn things above and beyond the essential student learning outcomes (ESLO).
  • The opportunity to complete assignments or prepare for tests.
  • Built into our school day every Friday morning immediately following the Nutrition Break.
  • An opportunity for all students and teachers at Nickle to focus on targeted learning.
  • All about Learning!

​Middle Years at the CBE

Middle years learning refers to education offered to students between the ages of 10-15. These years are critical in keeping our students on the path to high school completion and their career futures. Keys for student success include: participating in hands-on, purposeful and relevant learning; creating positive relationships with peers, teachers and other adults; and being actively involved in the community and feeling supported by family, businesses and other organizations that surround them.

Learn more about our students in their middle years, including how their learning will change and how you can support your child, visit the CBE website.​

​Exploring Career Choices

For Grades 5 to 9 at the CBE, we offer Career & Technology Foundations (CTF). This is an inquiry-based, hands-on program that focuses on essential skills common to occupational areas, and our students personalize their learning based on their interests and passions.​​​
