The Academic Upgrading program offers learning opportunities through to Grade 12 equivalency on a full-time or part-time basis, and is open to any person who successfully meets Grade 9 standards. Academic Upgrading is typically taken by three different student groups: those who want to complete their high school education, those who want to improve their final marks in high school courses, and those who did not take particular high school courses now required for entrance into their post-secondary program of choice.
