Quick Facts

CAPE provides personalized programming to support each student as they pursue their personal goals. Small class sizes and the resulting low student to staff ratio is foundational to supporting academic and personal excellence.

The community is a partner in learning as it provides the domain for opportunities and experiences which expand beyond the school, including leadership, collaboration, diversity, and resourcefulness.

CAPE Nutritional Program

The Root Cellar has always been a key partner for our school nutrition program. With access to recent nutrition funding as provided by Alberta Education we have enabled the ability to expand our nutrition program to promote an open system where students can access meals or snacks without any issue. A new sliding style refrigerator is stocked with healthy food choices for the students to choose from. Dairy (cheese, yogurt, milk) grains (bagels, rice cakes, cereal) fruits and vegetables and a variety of lunch style items (wraps, sandwiches and soup). Dietary needs such as gluten free and Halal options are also available to students. The partnership with the Root Cellar has allowed the sourcing of the food items to be done at reasonable prices, which in turn allows us to provide food to students, while supporting our local partners.
