Alternative & Continuing Education / Summer Semester
The Adult Education Program is primarily for use by adults, over the age of 18, who wish to upgrade their academic credentials or complete their secondary education.
Programs are available to assist students who have experienced difficulty in a traditional secondary school setting and who are in need of an alternative program delivery model. Students are referred to these programs by their home school principal. Information on available programs can be obtained from Student Services.
Secondary school credit courses can be attained in two ways: independent study or teacher-directed. Teacher-directed classes have a minimum student enrollment requirement. Course offerings and registration dates will be advertised.
Literacy and Basic Skills
This program is available to students not currently enrolled in regular day school. An individualized program tailored to the student's needs allows for continuous intake. Each student's program is supervised by qualified instructors. Programs are available in several locations throughout the District.
Ministry of Education funding is available for community groups who would like to initiate after school Heritage Language programs for elementary school-aged children. Contact either Alternative and Continuing Education Centres listed below for more information.
Summer Semester may offer secondary credit upgrading, secondary new credit courses, remedial elementary, and adult education. Courses vary in length and begin early in July. More information is available from one of the offices listed below or from the Student Services department at any secondary school.
