About the Calgary Board of Education

The Calgary Board of Education (CBE) is the largest public school district in Western Canada, with 245 schools, serving 125,000 students.

The CBE follows the Alberta Government’s Program of Studies. All schools in the province of Alberta must follow this curriculum. Students who successfully complete high school courses are eligible to receive credits toward an Alberta High School Diploma.

The CBE offers a wide range of program choices. In addition to academic courses, all students take a range of options to ensure a well-rounded education. An international student coordinator works with students to provide a customized timetable based on their goals, needs and interests.

Full English Language Learner support is provided for international students at no additional charge.

International students are encouraged to get involved in extra-curricular activities. This is a great way to meet Canadian friends.
