CABE Secondary School
School District No. 43 (Coquitlam)
Principal's Message

Coquitlam Alternate Basic Education (CABE) is the smallest secondary school in the Coquitlam School District.  We offer self paced courses and alternative educational options for 200 students who come from all areas of the Tri-cities.  Our flexible schedule and continuous enrollment allow us to offer different educational opportunities than traditional secondary schools. Our small, welcoming environment creates an alternative structure that allows students who have struggled in other SD43 Secondary schools to excel.

We offer all of the required courses needed for graduation and a wide variety of elective opportunities.  Many of our students chose to graduate from CABE, however we have some students who opt for a blended program with another secondary school or who chose to return to their home school to complete graduation.

The school also houses the district’s young parent program.   A full service day care is provided on site and students participate in a combination of parent related courses and standard curriculum requirements. The program is support by a teacher and a full time youth worker who assist students in a variety of ways.

The staff and students at CABE are proud to be the best little school in Coquitlam.
