Our Students

Our students are from all walks of life. They come to our adult learning centres knowing they have made a decision that will have a significant impact on their lives. These are typically three reasons why you might be one of those students.

Mature Student High School Diploma 

  • You never completed high school
  • The mature student high school diploma is a fast-track, eight-credit high school diploma developed by the Province of Manitoba for adults.
  • It features regular high school credits including Grade 12 English and Mathematics.
  • If you have high school marks from before, certain credits my be carried forward.
  • You may also receive credit through the recognition of prior learning. Did you know that 25 per cent of Manitoba have not finish high school.
  •  At your registration interview, a form will be completed to determine how you will proceed towards your Mature Student Diploma. The form shows which credits you have already achieved and which you plan to take to meet your goal of achieving your diploma and preparing for future career plans. As you receive your marks in the courses you take, your plan will be adjusted to track your progress toward graduation. Please let the Registration Advisor know if your goal changes in case you may need to consider other course options. For example if you decide to enter a different post-secondary program – something that often happens as students discover new interests and talents – you may need specific prerequisites that can be substituted for the ones you selected initially. 

Regular High School Completion

  • You are within a few credits achieving a regular 30-credit high school diploma  
  • At our centres, you can get the credits you need to graduate

Academic Upgrading

  • Your career goals have changed since you graduated
    Our classes let you prepare for career advancement or post-secondary study.
  • As a graduate, you can take up to four extra high school courses with no further cost.
Transcript and Identification
  • A transcript of schooling is required, out of province, out of country, all and any previous school documentation is required. Contact the school where you last earned credits or get your transcript from Manitoba Education. Manitoba Education charges a small fee for this service.
  • Identification, photo I.D. (drivers license, passport, permanent resident, etc) as well as identification of address is required at time of Registration process 

Assessments

  • You can expect to be asked a few questions about your educational background and then be given assessments for your skill level in Mathematics and English. These in-house assessments give us a rough idea of your skill level and enable us to place you in classes where you will likely have the best change for success.

Course pre-requisites 

  • Certain courses have a prerequisite entry requirement e.g. Grade 12 Pre-calculus Math has a prerequisite of Grade 11 Pre-calculus Math. Where the student does not have the prior credit, demonstration of prior learning in the specific subject by means of an assessment is an option. Check specific course information for prerequisite requirements. 

Alternative ways of completing credits 

  •  The following options may be available to students and will be discussed during the registration process, Special Language Exams, Community Service Credit, High School Apprenticeship Program, and Recognition of Prior Learning. Please check specific course information for these requirements.
