​​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

Late French Immersion 

The Late French Immersion Program provides students with the opportunity to become highly functional in speaking, reading, writing, listening and communicating in French by the end of Grade 12. It is a program in which French is the language of instruction, beginning in Grade 7 and continuing through Grade 12. It is designed for students whose ­first language is not French so no prior French is required. Social Studies, Math, Science and French Language Arts are taught in French in Grades 7, 8 and 9. High school offers Social Studies, Math and French Language Arts in French.  This is the final opportunity to enter a French Immersion program prior to post-secondary education. If your child is currently in grade 6 and you live in our attendance area (south of Glenmore Trail and east of Macleod Trail), you are eligible to register.

 Some of the advantages of enrolling in French immersion include:

  • Increases cognitive ability and critical thinking skill (Your memory improves, your decision-making skills improve, increased attention, etc)
  • Develops learning and listening skills
  • Improves skills in your first language
  • Gives you skills for future language learning  (After learning one, it’s 1000x easier to learn another)
  • It boosts your creativity and your self-confidence
  • Opens doors to the future (jobs, education, travel)

​​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.​​​
