​​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

Assignments and Homework

One of our goals is to help students develop responsibility for their own learning. To assist students with this, we consistently strategize and emphasize the importance of completing work at an acceptable level that shares personal knowledge and understanding and is completed on time. Parents are encouraged to assist by providing a suitable place to work and by insisting that your child take ownership and personal responsibility for completing assignments and meeting deadlines.

Homework includes:

  • Completion of work that was not finished in class.
  • Completion of projects and assignments. If absent from school, it is expected, that the student will take responsibility for obtaining the missed work (60 minutes each night is an appropriate amount of homework)
  • On-going review of work. Study time set aside regularly

​​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.​​​
