Adult 12

The Adult 12 program is designed for people who want to enhance life skills, independence and self-sufficiency. The knowledge, skills, and attitudes gained in secondary education are important for those who wish to enter or re-enter the labour force, who need retraining, or who wish to advance in a chosen career.

Compulsory courses for Adult 12 (secondary completion) are:

  • English Language Arts A30
  • English Language Arts B30
  • One Canadian Studies course (Social Studies 30)
  • One level 20 or level 30 science
  • One level 20 or level 30 mathematics
  • Plus 2 electives at the 30 level (one credit may be granted for work experience)

This Grade 12 credential is recognized by employers and post-secondary institutions. Graduates who complete Adult 12 successfully go to on further education, training, or employment opportunities.

Adult Basic Education

  • Did you leave school before completing Grade 12?
  • Do you wish you were eligible for more jobs or training?
  • Do you need pre-requisites for post-secondary education?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above then Adult Basic Education is likely your right choice.
