CBE High School Programming and Registration

The Calgary Board of Education has created two resources to support student registration for high school. These documents replace individual school registration guides or in our case the LBHS Student Programming Guide. The resources are in two forms, one is a long guide outlining all High School courses available in CBE High Schools and the other is a short guide designed to assist students, parents, guardians with planning for High School.

The Get Ready Set short guide is available through this link: Get Ready Set Course Guide (pdf)

The detailed guide is available through: cbe.ab.ca/DetailedHSGuide or visit the CBE web site, High School Success page at: CBE High School Success
