Preparing for High School

High School Info Sheet Q & A

High School Information sessions

On November 21, Central Memorial High School, Bowness High School and Ernest Manning High School will have their Guidance Counselors come to our school for an information night from 6:00 – 7:00 pm.  All 3 meetings will be happening simultaneously.  We strongly encourage you to attend the meeting of the school your student is designated to for Grade 10. Counselors will be discussing course recommendations, transitions and any initial questions you may have.

This will not be a meeting to shop around to other high schools, only to discuss the process and courses for your child’s designated school.  For more information on transferring schools, please check the CBE Website:   https://cbe.ab.ca/registration/transfers/high-school-transfers/Pages/default.aspx

During January and February, high schools will be heavily involved in scheduling courses for their incoming grade 10 students. This information night is for families to familiarize themselves with the high school registration process.

There is no need to RSVP for this event as it is open to all our grade 9 students and families.

·         We will share details for each high school's information session as we receive 

notification of dates and times.  Checking the designated school's website is your best option for staying up to date.

·         *Note: your child's designated high school is determined by home address. If you 

are unsure of your child's designated high school please go to the link below and enter your home address: https://www.cbe.ab.ca/schools/find-a-school/Pages/default.aspx  

High School designations by map

A transfer request can be made to another CBE high school for the next school year when a program or sequence of courses is not offered at their designated school, or when a student in an alternative program wants to return to their Regular Program community school.
