CAPCL uses the Alberta Program of Studies and is accredited with Alberta Education. Alberta Education requires that CAPCL maintains high academic standards and achievement. To maintain these high academic standards, CAPCL realizes that not all students would benefit from, or be successful in, the program that we offer. For the benefit of students in the School and in the interests of prospective students, CAPCL must be selective in its admissions and placement of students. Guidelines

    • the student's past educational performance and experience;
    • the potential for the student to be successful in his/her future studies at CAPCL; and
    • the grade in which the student is applying to enter
  1. Students will not be accepted into a grade beyond 1 year above/below their age-appropriate level.
  2. An applicant, whose sibling attends CAPCL, will be given admission priority.
