For most students, there are no fees to attend CBe-learn

There are no fees for students who are both:

  • Age 19 or younger as of September 1 of that school year; and
  • A resident CBE student. A resident CBE student is a student where at least one parent/legal guardian (or the independent student) physically resides within the geographical boundary of CBE, and at least one parent/legal guardian (or the independent student) is not of the Roman Catholic faith. Regardless of living or parenting arrangements, parents/legal guardians must only identify one primary address, which must be within the geographical boundary of CBE.

Fees for adult students, or non resident CBE students

Please Note:  As of January, 2021, all mature students (those who are 20 years old or greater as of September 1 of the current school year) will have to provide proof of vaccination confirming that they are fully immunized against COVID-19 (have received all required doses of a vaccine authorized by Health Canada for use against COVID-19) or apply for and receive a CBE approved exemption on medical or other valid protected grounds under the Alberta Human Rights Act in order to enroll in and attend classes for Semester Two.

Students need to pay fees if they are age 20 or older as of September 1 of that school year, or if they are NOT a resident CBE student (see definition above). 

Course Fee 

  • $480 per 5 credit course  
  • $295 per 3 credit course 

Textbook Rental Fee: Varies  

Eligibility: For the full-time online learning program for Grades 1 to 12, CBe-learn does NOT accept students who are age 20 or older as of September 1 of that school year, or who are not a resident CBE student. Other CBe-learn programs have different eligibility criteria.
