Adult Students

Adult students are mature students who have turned 20 years old prior to September 1st of a school year.  As such, their education is no longer funded by the Alberta Government and those wishing to upgrade must cover the cost of their education.  The current adult rate through Career High Schools is $600.00 for a 5 credit course or $120/one credit course, plus a 1 time/school year $100 registration fee.  Adults wishing to garner this service can access career/educational planning and counseling; as well as learn about the short cuts and advantages given to adult students.

A mature student, for Alberta High School Diploma purposes, has many criteria, please come in and discuss this with us.  Achieving an Alberta High School Diploma is summarized in this brochure.  We will be happy to meet with any adult student to review their options.

A mature student may earn senior high school credits after successfully completing:

  • courses offered in a regular accredited school
  • courses offered under extension programs
  • courses offered by the Alberta Distance Learning Centre
  • a diploma examination conducted by Alberta Education with or without formal course instruction.
