Why Adult Education?

Adult Education students come from diverse backgrounds and attend South Hill or Gathering Place for a variety of reasons, including:

  • To complete graduation requirements
  • To upgrade marks or gain course prerequisites to qualify for post-secondary
  • To improve Numeracy and Literacy skills for employment
  • For personal interest and growth







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."
Daniel Zerbo
