​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.​​​

Program, Focus & Approach

International Spanish Academy

¿Quiénes somos? Our school is an International Spanish Academy! The International Spanish Academy program is an educational initiative of the Ministry of Education of Spain that complements the Calgary Board of Education's vibrant Spanish Bilingual Program by connecting schools from across Alberta and the United States. It provides students with opportunities to acquire and maintain language skills in Spanish and English and develop global citizenship through rich intercultural encounters.  


Work to Keep Yourself Organized

Whether You Use an Agenda, or an Electronic Organizer

Some students seem to get good marks without a great deal of effort; others work very hard to get good to average marks. A third group does very little and achieves poor marks; they may have been members of the second group who got discouraged. Which group will you be in?

“There are some who make things happen, some who watch things happen, and those who wonder what happened.” Regardless of which group you belong to, keeping yourself organized can help improve your grades. 

“Improvement Begins with an ‘I’.” 

Using either a paper or electronic planner, properly and consistently, will improve your marks because it provides organization which is a key to being successful. 

“If I Plan to Learn, I Must Learn to Plan.”

To help yourself and to achieve success, keep track of your activities and work, in (and out) of school. Record all homework when it is assigned (and also note when it is due). By recording marks from assignments and tests, you will be able to keep track of your academic standing.

Using some form of an agenda or planner allows you to set up a daily and weekly schedule that will allow you to budget both work/study time and leisure time. As the year progresses, you will be able to “fine-tune” your schedule to suit your needs. 

All AEC students are required to keep themselves organized using an agenda or planner. All students are provided with a school agenda at the beginning of the year. AEC School Agendas are advantageous as they contain important school information including the school calendar of Days and Events.

Agenda Replacements

Should you misplace your agenda, replacements are available to purchase from the Main Office for $5.00.

​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.​​​
