​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

The JCS Way

Joane Cardinal-Schubert High School is an inclusive and diverse learning community where relationships form the foundation that makes up our work. Students will have the opportunity to develop strong connections with peers and staff in the presence of an engaging, creative, active, inclusive and meaningful programs of study. Through a technology-rich environment, flexible use of time/space, and an inter-disciplinary approach to learning, students will be able to pursue their passions and potential. This is “Joane Cardinal-Schubert way”!  Please see our detailed "Vision Booklet" link on the right side of this page for more information.  Some highlights from this document will include...

Raven Time

Together, we will identify a staff advocate for each of our students. This advocate is the first contact for students and their family during their time at Joane Cardinal-Schubert High School. 

SOAR (Student Ownership & Academic Resiliency)

A focused portion of the school day that is designed to allow students and teachers to build positive learning relationships.   SOAR provides a regular opportunity for both enrichment and learning interventions (ex. special projects across subjects, tutorials, extended labs/presentations, small group instruction by teachers etc.).  Students are encouraged to take ownership for their learning and advocate for their needs during this time.  If students are not diligent in their studies, SOAR may become a mandatory time to ensure they are supported.

​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.
