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.

Pen Pals Program

CAPE grade 8/9A and 8/9B students have been engaged in an enlightening cultural experience with the school College Marcel Doret in Le Vernet, France. They are a part of a pen pal program exchanging friendly letters with students of their own age living in the city of Toulouse (the 5th biggest city in France). The students are new to the English language and have only been exposed to it for the last 3 years.

14 October, 2021

CAPE has partnered with Mother Earth’s Children’s Charter School.

Principal Erin Danforth and teacher Maxine Hildebrandt came to Medicine Hat over the summer to meet with CAPE staff. We are hoping to share information and possibly set up student exchange visits between MECCS and CAPE School during the year. Mrs. Hildebrandt’s students have already started sharing activities with teacher Sara Fairbrother’s students at CAPE by exchanging All About Me posters to let them get to know each other.
