​​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...


TRC Calls to Action Commitment

Joane Cardinal-Schubert High School acknowledges and supports the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Calls to Action, and makes the following commitment to action:

The TRC Call to Action 63 advocates building capacity for intercultural understanding, empathy, and mutual respect. We commit to the concept of “two-eyed seeing” to support shared experiences that respect and build on the strengths of both Indigenous and Western ways of knowing, and learning and embracing Indigenous “wholeness” in our community to support a greater sense of belonging for all.

The following resources will help staff, students, and parents better understand our commitment: 

What is reconciliation?

A message from Murray Sinclair, Chair of the Truth & Reconciliation Commission

The Guiding Principle of Two-Eyed Seeing

 “Etuaptmumk is the Mi'kmaw word for Two-Eyed Seeing.  We often explain Etuaptmumk - Two-Eyed Seeing by saying it refers to learning to see from one eye with the strengths of Indigenous knowledges and ways of knowing, and from the other eye with the strengths of Western knowledges and ways of knowing ... and learning to use both these eyes together, for the benefit of all.” (Two-Eyed Seeing. Guiding Principles (Two Eyed Seeing) | Integrative Science. (n.d.). Retrieved October 6, 2021, from http://www.integrativescience.ca/Principles/TwoEyedSeeing/).


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.
