CAPE School is focused on achieving academic and personal excellence. This is achieved through the personalized integrated program. This program is supported through community partnerships, partnerships with parents, collaboration with external services, and a counselling approach to discipline.
I.S.E.E. Integrated Setting for Enrichment Education
September 2003 saw the beginning of the Gifted & Talented Program for students in grade 6-9. Identified gifted and/or talented grades 6-8 students (coded) were grouped in a cross-grade class. They were offered a fully-enriched, integrated, interactive program of studies in four core subjects, which also involved group work, individual and/or group projects, and special projects. In September 2006 a similar program was introduced in response to grades 4 and 5 student needs and parental request. This program became known as the I.S.E.E. Program (Integrated Setting for Enrichment Education). Currently CAPE offers a separate environment for students who require enrichment education based on Alberta Education’s recognition of “gifted and talented” students. Parents have the choice for their qualifying students to learn in a class which focuses on the unique challenges of these students.
