A+ A-

This Employment Ontario program is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario and through the Canada-Ontario Job Fund Agreement.

Academic Upgrading Program

Academic Upgrading is a non-credit employment preparation and academic upgrading program for adults.  The Academic Upgrading program can support you in learning important concepts and developing skills and attitudes that build confidence and a solid foundation for your future academic career or chosen pathway.  Individualized programs and instruction are the keys to success!

Students geared more towards academic upgrading will focus on reading, writing and numeracy to prepare for further education to achieve a Secondary School Diploma, Post-Secondary education or an Apprenticeship opportunity.

If you need support or preparation for mathematics, we offer a new Math Preparation program to suit your needs.

The Academic Upgrading program is a self-paced learning program where students feel comfortable in small classes. Each program is individualized and tailored to meet the specific needs of the student.

Classes are individually taught by certified teachers which means students find it easier to learn and progress. Students learn the fundamentals of education including Pre-High School levels of Literacy and Numeracy.
