Our School

The CLC serves students in Rocky View Schools through a variety of programs. The CLC includes an Outreach school with three campuses spread throughout the division, which works to remove barriers to learning and offers the flexibility and independence that some students require. The CLC also offers the flexibility of summer school, allowing students to learn during summer months when the traditional schools do not operate. There is also a supervised Home Education program for families choosing to educate their child at home yet wanting some support from their school division. It is also made up of the Beyond the Classroom Programs, with Building Futures Airdrie and Cochrane, RVS Mechanics Training Centre and RVS Leadership Academy. Each of these programs focuses on teaching high school students through authentic, real-world tasks and enriching those experiences through community partnerships including home building, mechanics and leadership skills. The CLC also offers Off Campus Education, which includes Work Experience, Workplace Readiness, Green Certificate and Registered Apprenticeship Program, allowing students to learn valuable work experiences and skills, as they earn high school credits. Finally, the CLC offers Dual Credit, where students earn college credits while in high school. While these programs may seem unrelated to each other, they are linked by two key factors; at the CLC we build strong relationships with the students and families we serve and teachers create authentic alternative learning opportunities for these students.
