CBe-learn provides students with choice and flexibility in their learning either part-time or full-time through a number of distinct academic terms.  Each term has multiple entry points, providing students with a flexible start date into a course that ends in alignment with traditional school settings (January and June). With this flexibility students are able to access their academic courses anytime throughout the school year, by choosing a term they want to register in based on how much time they can spend on the course, and when they want to finish.

CBe-learn offers continuous registration throughout the school year. Students can register in Core Academic or Complementary courses from August through June of the school year. CBe-learn Core Academic courses will have a new cohort of students starting at least once a month – even more frequently in peak periods. Weekly Access courses will begin almost every Thursday during the school year (September – May). With these flexible options, students are always able to fit online learning into their full academic and extracurricular schedules.

In the 2017-2018 school year, we will continue to provide options for students looking for a more traditional calendar (September – January & February – June). We will continue to support the CBE with summer school programing (through the month of July). We will also be offering an incredible amount of flexibility to students through a distinct year-long term that will permit students to recuperate lost credits, extend their time required in the course, accelerate through their courses quickly, or make-up for lost work. This will offer all students maximum flexibility in their programing choices.

Depending on the date of registration, students will be enrolled to their Core Academic course(s) or Weekly Access course(s) based on the following schedule:
