Grades 10-12


CBe-learn provides students with choice and flexibility in their learning either part-time or full-time through a number of distinct academic terms.  Each term has multiple entry points, providing students with a flexible start date into a course that ends in alignment with traditional school settings (January and June). With this flexibility students are able to access their academic courses anytime throughout the school year, by choosing a term they want to register in based on how much time they can spend on the course, and when they want to finish.

CBe-learn offers continuous registration throughout the school year. Students can register in Core Academic or Complementary courses from August through June of the school year. CBe-learn Core Academic courses will have a new cohort of students starting at least once a month – even more frequently in peak periods. Weekly Access courses will begin almost every Thursday during the school year (September – May). With these flexible options, students are always able to fit online learning into their full academic and extracurricular schedules.

In the 2019-2020 school year, we will continue to provide options for students looking for a more traditional calendar (September – January & February – June). We will continue to support the CBE with summer school programming (through the months of June and July). We will also be offering an incredible amount of flexibility to students through a distinct year-long term that will permit students to recuperate lost credits, extend their time required in the course, accelerate through their courses quickly, or make-up for lost work. This will offer all students maximum flexibility in their programming choices.
