Discovering Choices offers a flexible schedule and students engage in personalized self- paced learning. The environment is student centered yet adult learning oriented and requires independence and self-motivation to meet success.

Discovering Choices offers a limited selection of complimentary classes and extra-curricular activities. For students looking for a broader selection, or specific opportunities, it is important to experience a traditional high school environment.

​​​​New to the CBE​

CBE's registration process has changed. To register a student please follow the Registration instructions outlined on the CBE website. 

Registration at Calgary Board of Education (CBE) schools is not determined on a first come, first served basis. Registration and admission to schools in CBE are governed by the Education Act and Administrative Regulation 6090 | Child and Student Registration and Admission.

Here you can find:

General Registration Information

If you have questions for our school, contact us for information.

It is not possible to register at the school on holidays and during the summer. During the summer break you can find more information and dates on our Back to School page.

Non-Canadian students have a different registration process: please see our Non-Canadian Students page​ for details.​

​​​​​​​​​Transferring Between CBE Schools

At the CBE, when you are transitioning from elementary to middle school, or from middle school to high school, you will be automatically registered at your designated school according to your home address. To find out what your designated school is, use our Find a School tool. 

If you are interested in attending a school other than your designated school, visit CBE's Transferring Between Schools page for transfer information. Please note that some schools are quite full and not able to accept all transfer requests.
