Continue Learning With Us


The Vancouver School District’s AE program provides students ages 16 years or older with courses from the literacy level to secondary school completion.  Our students come from all over the Vancouver Lower Mainland and from countries across the world.

At South Hill and Gathering Place, we offer a wide variety of structured and self-paced courses for students looking to complete their high school education or upgrade courses for college or university program entry. 

Our students work in our supportive learning environment to complete or upgrade high school academic and elective courses. 

We are here to help students complete their secondary education and pursue either the Dogwood or Adult Dogwood diploma.

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."
