HistoryEdit

The school was established in 2001 as a virtual learning campus as part of the Calgary Board of Education. Along with the traditional High School program at Ernest Manning High School, CBe-learn moved to the new Ernest Manning Campus in fall 2011.[3] In spring 2013, CBe-learn relocated all administrative and student support services to Lord Shaughnessy High School.

Online programsEdit

CBe-learn offers full Elementary, Jr High and Sr High courses in an online environment, including core academic and complementary courses.[4]

Online courses are offered through Desire2Learn a comprehensive tool that permits students to interact with course content, instructors and each other.[5]

Students and teachers interact online through web-based tools, or face-to-face during teacher office hours.[6]

HomeschoolingEdit

CBe-learn also offers a homeschooling option for students in grades 1 through 9. This teacher-supported homeschooling program allows families the option of a fully homeschooled option,[7] or a blended environment where certified teachers as well as parents act as the students' teachers.[8]

Career and Technology CentreEdit

CBe-learn is located in the same campus as the Career and Technology Centre,[9] which opened in fall 2010.[10] The Career and Technology Centre provides students the opportunity to access industry-standard equipment and training, in preparation for careers in a variety of technical fields.
