High School Upgrading
If you did not complete high school, do not have the grades required to take the post-secondary program you want, or have been out of school for a long time, our high school courses may be for you. Our program provides a variety of learning options to match your needs. We offer traditional classroom instruction during the fall and the winter terms or ongoing flexibly scheduled self-directed learning. You can study at our campus or at home through our online option and you can take courses during the day or you can come in the evening. Mature students who did not complete high school are able to gain credits to obtain a High School Equivalency Diploma issued by Alberta Education.
