Our School

Cape Breton Highlands Education Centre/Academy is located in Terre Noire, Nova Scotia, on the beautiful Cabot Trail.

We have a wonderful school community. At CBHEC/A, we foster student achievement in academics and social emotional development. We believe that building relationships with students and families is so important for a great school experience.

The school was opened in 2000 and brings together students from many communities including Pleasant Bay and the Acadian communities of Cap-le-Moine, Saint-Joseph-du-Moine, Grand-Étang, Point Cross, Chéticamp and Petit-Étang, as well as from the different Margaree areas.  CBHEC/A has a very diverse population.
