Timetable: Four Quarter Schedule – Two Courses at a time

The “Quarter Schedule” has been utilized by post-secondary institutions and secondary schools for many years with additional educational institutions adopting this model during the COVID-19 pandemic. It consists of a focused calendar where students take two classes at a time rather than eight in Cambie’s traditional linear schedule.

Basics of the Four Quarter Schedule:

  • A Quarter lasts for approximately 10 weeks or 43-44 consecutive school days.
  • Students will take two classes per quarter.
  • Teachers will teach two class per quarter in-person.
  • Classes will meet per student schedules (Student Schedules will be emailed home this week and available to view online on MyEdBC – Student Portal).
