​​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

Core Courses

Students are enrolled in core courses which are required by all students to complete during the school year. These include:

  • Math 
  • Science 
  • Humanities 
  • Physical Education 
  • Health

Complimentary Courses

Students are given an opportunity to indicate their interest in the Complementary Courses offered by rating them 1 - 10 (1 being the course they want the most). As some courses are more popular than others, we do our best to enroll students in their top 6 choices. Due to limited enrollment, students are not allowed to change their courses once the school year has begun.

See our complimentary course options page for course descriptions. 

Assignment Completion / Homework

Completing assignments are necessary for students to increase and demonstrate their learning. Students at Dr. Egbert are expected to complete all assignments. Extension opportunities will be given to students within a reasonable time. If assignments remain incomplete, teachers will work with the students through a variety of options including phone calls home and homework clubs. Persistent and habitual incompletion will be referred to administration.

​​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.​​​

Good luck to all of our Grade 9 students who are writing the Provincial Achievement Tests this morning! Here is a link to FAQ https://t.co/iG7TBbtJtm #WeareCBE https://t.co/LuKz0mJPf2
