Program, Focus & Approach

Home Education

If parents choose Home Education, they have the option to either direct the education of their child themselves, or choose a shared responsibility program where the parent and a certified teacher share the programming responsibilities. In either case, the responsibility of the parent in home education includes: 

  • Establishing the learning outcomes, goals and targets based on current learning skills
  • Determining learning activities, instructional methods and resources used to deliver the learning, and 
  • Assessing and evaluating student learning growth throughout the year.

How Do I Get Started?

  1. Become informed 
  2. Book an intake meeting
  3. Declare learner outcomes
  4. Complete registration forms 
  5. Attend the intake meeting 
  6. Create initial learning plan 
  7. Meet with facilitator

General Inquiries can be directed to Assistant Principal, Carrie Rowlandson at cerowlandson@cbe.ab.ca


Learning Plan

A parent who intends to provide a home education program must develop, administer and manage the home education program. The parent provides a written description of the program, called a “learning plan”, that includes:

  • the learner outcomes that are appropriate to the child’s program,
  • a list of activities selected, which enable the student to achieve the learner outcomes,
  • instructional methods and resources to be used,
  • the means for conducting evaluations of the student’s
  • progress including a method for documenting and gathering evidence of learning,
  • the name of the person instructing the home education program, if not the parent.

​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.​

​Dual Credit at the CBE

As a CBE student you may choose to take a dual credit program as part of your high school learning plan. Dual credit programs allow you to:

  • Study in an area of passion and interest
  • Get a jump start on post-secondary learning.
  • Earn high school and post-secondary credits (transferable).
  • Build confidence and develop skills that will support a successful post- secondary transition.
  • Experience a post-secondary learning environment and learn about on-going opportunities.
  • Reduce first year course load and the time required to complete a program.

As a dual credit student, you would be enrolled in both a post-secondary institution and in your high school concurrently. You would earn credits towards both a high school diploma and post-secondary degree or diploma.


Application packages and program details will be posted on:

​Exploring Career Choices

Career and Technology education provides CBE students with opportunities for personalized learning that are dynamic and support them to transition into education, training and work. It is a part of the Alberta Programs of Study, and is offered in every school, every day and for every student.
 
Career and Technology Studies (CTS) is a complementary program designed for our high school students. Students develop career and technology-related skills while enhancing employability competencies. Here is an overview of CTS pathways and Knowledge and Employability (K&E) Occupational Courses, and information on specialized facilities.
 

Career & Technology Centre at Lord Shaughnessy High School

The Career & Technology Centre (CTC) is a hub for CTS learning for students registered in CBE high schools across Calgary. Students who attend the CTC will take courses at their designated high schools, but they will also access the CTC to enhance their learning through credentialed, dual credit or pre-placement programs for specific periods of time.
