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

Adult Education offers a variety of structured and self-paced courses. Students work in a supportive environment to complete high school academic and elective courses. Our ultimate goal is to help students complete their secondary education and pursue either the Dogwood or Adult Dogwood diploma.

Why Adult Education? 

Adult Education students come from diverse backgrounds and attend Adult Education 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
