Message from the Director of Adult Education Programming & RETlife


You have decided to return to school to get your high school diploma or upgrade to be ready to achieve your life and career plans. Congratulations. You have joined an ever-growing group of Manitobans who want the best for themselves and their families. Last year, over 6,000 adults in Manitoba attended the more than 40 adult learning centres in the province. In this area alone, we had 95 graduates and hundreds more completed courses for credit beyond graduation.

We hope you will see your teachers and each Centre's staff as partners in your learning success. Have a great semester.

Our Centres

Our adult-focused centres are vibrant places of learning staffed by caring teachers and advisors who work with over 500 students annually.  We offer day and evening classes at two centres:

  • McLeod Adult Learning Centre - 530 McLeod Avenue
  • Transcona Adult Learning Centre - 130 Regent Ave E.

If you are 19 or older and want to earn you high school dipoma or upgrade your credits so you can move on to further education or better career prospects, we invite you to visit our centre to learn how we can help you achieve your goals.. 

Currently, there are three types of learners:

  • Those completing a mature student diplomaβ€”an eight-credit high school diploma especially designed for adults over age 19.
  • Those completing a regular, 30-credit high school diploma, who are age 19 or older and not also attending regular high school.
  • High school graduates who are taking extra courses needed for university, college, apprenticeship programs or job advancement.
