Adult Upgrading/GED

If you are an adult who didn’t finish school, you might need a high school diploma (or equivalent) to take a training program or to get a job. Or maybe you have just decided it is time for you to do what you always wished you did – get your Grade 12. Reading Help and Personal Development are two other aspects of Adult Education that our community has requested. 

We have a reading instructor trained in the Orton-Gillingham method who works with learners, and we provide classes to gain the Reading Essentials credit – a Nova Scotia Community College credit that can be applied to your High School Diploma for Adults. Our Lifestreams program helps learners with self-awareness and self-care, values clarification, communication and team skills, and numerous other aspects of Personal Development.

At VCLA we have worked with hundreds of learners to get a high school equivalency. Many of our learners write the GED tests. Others earn credits through correspondence courses and the Nova Scotia School for Adult Learning. VCLA can facilitate ways to get credits in the Cooperative Education Program. Students can complete the High School Diploma for Adults.

Teachers with learners at Oakdene Community Hub.

With daytime and evening options, in-person sessions, virtual learning or take-home activities, and 1-1 tutoring available, we can probably help you too.

We have GED classes in Kentville and Middleton. Daytime GED classes run September through June each year, and have continuous intake.
Evening GED classes are offered as needed.
