High School Upgrading


Chinook Learning Services is the Calgary Board of Education's provider of in-person high school upgrading and completion. Students come to Chinook to:

  • Complete a high school diploma.
  • Increase competitive average and / or deepen curricular understanding as a bridge to post-secondary.
  • Upgrade to a higher academic stream.
  • Learn in an inclusive, adult environment.

Students who are still eligible to attend their home high school are not permitted to register with Chinook Learning Services for Fall or Winter semesters. Daytime courses are available to students 19 years of age or younger as of September 1 of the current school year. Evening courses are open to all adult learners.


Chinook offers courses at three locations. Each Chinook site is its own separate space within these school buildings:

  • Forest Lawn High School (NE) - map
  • James Fowler High School (NW) - map
  • Lord Beaverbrook High School (SE) - map


Our dedicated and experienced teachers can help you reach your academic goals. We offer a variety of Student Supports to help you while you learn.
