CBE Home Education may be exclusively done in the home, or combined in the home and in a school setting at the Windsor Park School location. Home Education offices and classes operate Monday to Thursday.
Any family who is a resident of the Calgary Board of Education may register with CBE Home Education Program. Alberta Homeschoolers able to meet for a face-to-face meeting three times per year may also register with CBE Home Education. We do have families from Okotoks, Cochrane, Airdrie and other towns near Calgary.
This program is designed for families who wish to be responsible for offering a program of studies for their child by developing, administering, managing and evaluating the progress of their student, and maintaining a record of those studies.
Through our Windsor Park location, CBE Home Education provides families with:
- eight spacious activity/classrooms (equipped with computers and wireless accessible)
- wireless Internet throughout
- large hall space and showcases to display projects/student work
- learning commons
- project room
- lunchroom program
- meeting space
- playground facilities:
- students are encouraged to demonstrate proper respect and to display appropriate positive behaviour
- activities such as tobogganing, tubing, crazy carpeting and sledding are not permitted on School Board properties
The Calgary Board of Education is committed to providing and supporting flexible, personalized learning experiences for all children and families. Through our Windsor Park location, we offer both a parent-directed and a shared responsibility program to families who wish to be responsible for developing, administering, managing and evaluating a program of educational studies for their child.
