Calgary Board of Education Discovering Choices School
Grades 10-12



Welcome to Discovering Choices

Outreach Programs are for students who find that regular High School programs and services do not meet their needs. To encourage students to continue in school and complete their High School diploma or Certificate of High School Achievement, the Calgary Board of Education has four Outreach locations. Outreach also provides students with additional services such as personal and career counselling, conflict resolution, time management and study skills, parenting skills and learning strategies. To find out more information, please contact one of the locations under Discovering Choices in the navigation bar at the top.
