The Vancouver School District’s Adult Education program provides adult students ages 16 or older with courses from the literacy level to secondary school completion.

Our supportive learning environment and flexible approach means you can study in a way that best fits your life:

  • Structured classroom-based in-person courses
  • hybrid self-paced courses

Students study with us to:

  • complete courses for graduation (Dogwood or Adult Dogwood Diploma)
  • to upgrade marks or complete prerequisites for post-secondary programs
  • improve numeracy and literacy skills for employment
  • personal interest

What our students are saying:

"I am so grateful to Adult Education because it allowed me to understand what I needed to do to achieve my goals of higher education. I would never have been able to realize my goals without the support of the faculty and the system over all. I developed good study habits that have followed me into my first year of law school. I also have such fond memories of my time there. It is never to late too realize your full potential."
