​​​​​​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.

Fourth-Year Applications 

Students are expected to complete high school within three years. On occasion fourth-year applications are received and may be considered. Fourth-year applications should be discussed with a guidance counsellor and an assistant principal, and will be accepted or denied by the principal. The decision to approve or deny a fourth-year application is guided by CBE Administrative Regulation 6093—Fourth Year of High School. All fourth-year approvals are on a semester-by-semester basis.
