Description:The Academic Foundations program offers adults the opportunity to upgrade to the Grade Nine equivalency. There are three levels to choose from: Entry (Adult Literacy), Intermediate and Advanced. Placement is based on the individual applicant's skills and knowledge. All three levels are available on a full or part-time basis. Upon completion, students may continue in the College Preparation program, qualify for admission into Career or Trades programs, or enter the workplace.

The entry level of Academic Foundations builds students' functional literacy skills in math, writing, reading and computers to a Grade 5.5 level. As a student in the entry-level program, you will work with your instructors to build a personal education plan tailored to address your needs. Small group, one-on-one instruction, and a variety of reading materials are used to meet your needs and interests. You may join entry level in September or January. Select courses are offered in May based on demand.

Students wishing to enter the Intermediate and Advanced Levels program should meet with a Student Advisor to clarify their educational goals and determine the appropriate level of entry.
