Grade 10 Overview

Students coming to CBe-learn for Grade 10 courses will be given advice and guidance as they choose their program.


Students finish their core academic courses in a semestered system, as they would in many traditional high schools. Using this system, students may pick two core academic subjects in the fall, and two more in winter. Students supplement their academic courses with other online options, such as Phys. Ed. 10, Social Sciences, a second language, or a CTS online course.  Students also have opportunity to request classroom based electives presented in the Career and Technology Centre (  The Calgary Board of Education also extends complementary programming through their Unique Opportunities partnerships ( )  Students should aim to complete 35-40 credits in their grade 10 year.

Course Selection

CBe-learn’s course selection/timetabling occurs on a semester-by-semester basis. We request that the student and their legal guardian connect with us mid-November to discuss winter semester course choices. An email will be sent to families early November to advise them of the timelines to connect with their Student Services Advisor or Guidance Counsellor for winter course selection.

Grade 10 Course Planning

Students should discuss their plan for the school year with their Student Advisor or Guidance Counsellor, and determine the best, personalized plan.. Students also need to consider if they are taking full-time courses with CBe-learn, or face-to-face courses at their community school.  If they are choosing to do a blended program in which they take classes in their community school and one or two classes online, they should register with their community school and not CBe-learn.
