Our students are from all walks of life. They come to our adult learning centre 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 didn't complete 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 previously earned high school marks, certain credits may be carried forward.
- You may also receive credit through the recognition of prior learning. Did you know that 25 per cent of Manitobans have not finished 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

- Identification, photo I.D. (drivers license, passport, permanent resident, etc) as well as identification of address is required at time of Registration process
- 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.
- 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
