Community learning: Adult Education Centre

Did you know four out of every ten adults who live in BC have not graduated from secondary school.

Did you know four out of every ten adults who live in BC have not graduated from secondary school.

One in four of these adults have less than a Grade 9 education.

For this reason many people decide to continue their learning each year and many of them enroll in adult programs.

The Fort Adult Centre for Education’s primary objective is to offer courses leading to a Dogwood Diploma.

If you have not graduated, you can register to work towards your diploma.

However, the Adult Centre can also be used to upgrade your marks for college/university entrance or apprenticeship programs.

If you are a Graduate and need upgrading for post-secondary education entrance requirements, come in and register.

All courses that you register for are free.

You may come in to work at your own pace or work at home or camp.

Please feel free to drop in during the centre’s hours of operation and check us out. The Adult Education Centre is open September to June, Monday to Friday 8 a.m. – 4 p.m..

If you wish, the centre can lay out an education plan for obtaining your Dogwood or design a custom program for you.

For more information, you can reach the Adult Education Centre at 996-7712 or come to the Centre.  It is located at 250 Stuart Drive, Suite 221 in the Goodwin Building.

Registration of students and course completions generates funding to run the Center.

Registration is on-going so come in at any time. It is never too late and you are never too old to earn your diploma or learn something new.
