​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.​​​

Programming at Our School

William Aberhart School offers a range of programs including Advanced Placement (AP), Dual Credit, Early French Immersion, Late French Immersion, Off-Campus Work Experience, Regular and Spanish Bilingual programs. Our English Language Learners (ELL) program provides tailored, personalized and flexible support to meet our students’ specific learning needs. We also welcome students with Exceptional & Special Needs (see more under Classes & Departments).

​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.
