“Is it a good idea to go back to high school?”


Having a high school diploma opens so many more doors for you. It will provide options for you to:

  • Earn more
  • Apply for more and different types of jobs
  • Enrol in post-secondary education programs, including apprenticeships.

If you are thinking about going back to high school, you can look at doing it through a local school board, depending on your age, residency and citizenship.

You can also finish high school at a post-secondary school
