Calgary Board of Education

The Calgary Board of Education (CBE) is located in Calgary, a city of 1.3 million people very close to the famous Rocky Mountains. Furthermore, it is a safe, quiet and welcoming city with a high standard of living.

CBE has achieved the highest results in PISA tests worldwide. All the institutes have international student coordinators who guide and help in the selection of the subjects, in the process of transition to the educational system and in the planning of further studies. In addition, all have the option of International Baccalaureate, as well as specific programs in art, music, sports, languages ​​and technology.

CBE has a network of families specially selected to host international students. Living with a Canadian family in the Calgary District is an extraordinary way to get to know and experience the country's own culture, as well as a perfect way to practice the language in a totally English-speaking environment.

Educational ideology

It is a pleasure to welcome all international students to the Calgary Board of Education. Our professional Global Learning staff will assist you through every step of your application process. Our promise is to place your child in a school that meets their needs. International students are encouraged to get involved in extracurricular activities. This is a great way to meet Canadian friends.

Student success is at the center of all our decisions. Achieving student success requires the commitment of every part of the CBE community: employees, students, parents, industry leaders, and government. It requires a vision of what success looks like for each student and a plan for how to get there.

Our education plan guides our work and connects every CBE employee to our ultimate goal of student success. Everything we do to support students falls into four categories within this plan; Personalize learning, build professional capital, manage our resources, and engage our audience. Our plan is also aligned with Alberta Education's direction and the values ​​of opportunity, fairness, citizenship, choice, diversity and excellence.
