Academic Guidelines

There are several ways the province of Alberta recognizes high school completion:

  • a High School Diploma
  • a Certificate of High School Achievement
  • transitioning to a post-secondary institution or apprenticeship in Alberta

Most students complete high school in three years; others do so in four or more years. In CBE schools, counsellors, teachers, and school administrators support you in developing a unique learning plan that is based on your learning style, interests, goals, and career aspirations.

Alberta also recognizes the achievement of high school students with significant exceptional cognitive needs and disabilities with a Certificate of School Completion in special education.
