​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.​​​

Character Education

We focus on a variety of virtues throughout the school year. We also believe it is very important to recognize students for their personal and class accomplishments, so students are recognized during our Virtue Awards assemblies. Each month, one or more students from each class will be recognized for their academic and / or character commitment, aligned with the virtue of the month. Classes also have the opportunity to host one assembly and share their learning during the year. Students may also be involved in character circles to reinforce societal values and provide students with opportunities to discuss issues and solve problems.

School Learning Team

Our School Learning Team provides limited assistance to students who have been identified as having special needs. This group consists of the classroom teacher(s) and administration and when placement is not appropriate, TLC specialists from student Support Services may be included. If you have had your child privately assessed, please notify the school so that we may plan accordingly. Individual Program Plans (IPPs) will be reviewed at reporting periods with students, parents and homeroom teachers. Your input is extremely valuable.

​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.​​​
