Adult Upgrading

An adult learner is 20 years, or older, on September 1st of the current school year and is no longer funded by Alberta Education.

This is an ideal learning environment for adult students wanting to upgrade for post-secondary, meet apprenticeship requirements, or complete Diploma requirements.

We do not offer K & E Programming for Adults.

** Academic core courses require approximately 6 hours/week per subject to complete within a 5 month term. Although attendance is flexible, you will be encouraged to make weekly, in person contact with the school. In most cases, students that are unable to come in weekly are not successful with their program.
