​​​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

Blended Courses

At RTHS we blend the course sequences (-1, -2, -3 and -4) courses in ELA, Math, Social Studies and Science in grade 10.  We blend because we believe that you still have room to grow and succeed beyond your capabilities in grade 9.  As staff we will communicate the outcomes required for each course sequence so that you can challenge yourself and complete the highest sequence based on your abilities, interests, past successes and future plans.

We also blend the ELA and Social Studies course sequences in grade 11.

FOCUS

Focus is attached to core block for Grade 10’s, mandatory in Grade 11 and expected in Grade 12.

  • Purpose for Focus – To extend and support student learning along the way. Various connect teachers from the community help students by providing enrichment and regular interventions for learning – special projects across subjects, extended labs/presentations, small group instruction by teachers etc.
  • Focus time will initially be planned by teachers in response to student input and needs. We encourage students to take ownership for their learning and advocate for their needs. What interests you? Where do you want to focus your energy?

Connect Time

Connect Time Students meet with their connect teacher every week.

Purpose for Connect Time: To get to know our students as learners. To evolve digital student learning plans. To come together and build relationships and community. To work through CALM outcomes. To plan and prepare for graduation and post high school.

Times for Connect: After Period 1 on Fridays or as scheduled by school.

Attendance: Mandatory for all grades.

​​​​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 ongoing opportunities.
  • Reduce first-year course load and the time required to complete a program.

As a dual credit student, you would be concurrently enrolled in both a post-secondary institution and your high school​. You would earn credits towards both a high school diploma and a 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 dynamic, personalized learning opportunities that​ 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 for 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. Still, they will also access the CTC to enhance their learning through credentialed, dual credit or pre-placement programs for specific periods.
