​​​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

Homework Assignments

Each of the areas listed below should be part of your regular homework routine:

  • Students can access Google Classroom to view homework assignments and handouts for core subjects.
  • Completion of work not finished in class.
  • Completion of long-term assignments. If an assignment is due in 2-3 weeks, work on it regularly. Do not leave it until the night before it is due.
  • Review of work taken each day. Studies have shown that 70% of material learned is forgotten within three days if there has been no review.
  • Study for exams and tests. Students should review daily.
  • Students should be prepared to study and/or review schoolwork five nights a week.  


Teachers are available for extra help outside classroom hours. Teachers will set and post their own dates and times for help.

​​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.​​​
