Support for Students at the CBE

Our students’ success is our top priority and we understand that our students live complex lives and that many factors both in the school and outside of school can affect their ability to learn. The CBE offers a variety of services (such as Culture and Linguistic Support, Exceptional and Special Needs, and Psychological Services) to support students, their families and our school, so students can be successful learners.

2021-2022 Alexander Rutherford Scholarship Applications & Student Loans

Any grade 12 student with an academic average over 75% in either/and or grade 10,11, and 12 may apply for the Alexander Rutherford High School Achievement Scholarship!  All details are available at the site listed below.


Please note that to receive monies, you must be attending post-secondary in the Fall of this year.

If you are taking a gap year(s), you may still apply indefinitely the summer prior to your September start at post secondary. The money is held for you in trust until such time you go to post- secondary for the first time.


Please review all the details carefully at this website as it may answer many of the questions you have regarding which courses may be presented to meet the Rutherford criteria. This is a generous program whereby many students with an 75% average over three years may  receive as much as 2500 dollars. This money is not dispersed until proof of post -secondary registration happens in the Fall. Once this occurs, cheques are mailed directly to students.
