About VSB's Adult Education program:

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. 

Why choose Adult Education?

  • Complete courses for high school graduation (Dogwood or Adult Dogwood Diploma)
  • Upgrade marks or complete prerequisites for post-secondary entrance
  • Improve numeracy and literacy skills for future employment
  • Advance skills for personal interest

A flexible approach to learning:

Our flexible approach to learning allows Adult Education students to study in a way that best fits their lifestyle! Adult Education students have the option to attend structured classes, self-paced courses or a combination of both. Students can attend classes in the morning, afternoon, evening or/and on Saturdays.

What our students are saying:

"I am so grateful for 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. I developed good study habits that have followed me into my first year of law school. It is never too late to realize your full potential."

-- Daniel Zerbo, former VSB Adult Education student
