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.
