After completing their graduation program, Adult Education students will receive a Dogwood diploma (high school diploma), as any other secondary student would.
Most students have two options to graduate, either through a 2018 Graduation Program (Dogwood) or an Adult Graduation Program (Adult Dogwood).
2018 Graduation Program (for students 16-18)
The 2018 Graduation Program (Dogwood) is required for students who have entered grade 10 for the first time since 2018. Students must acquire 80 credits at the grade 10, 11 and 12 levels. Please visit the Ministry’s website for more information.
Adult Graduation Program (for students 18 or older)
The Adult Graduation Program (Adult Dogwood) is open to students who are 18 or older. This program requires a student to successfully complete 20 credits that must include English 12 and math 11. To be eligible for the Adult Graduation Program, the student must take at least three of their courses leading towards graduation as an adult (18 years of age or older).
