Connect Golden Hills School Division

Adult Learners

Unlike many schools within Alberta, GHLA accepts students who are over the age of 20 years old as of September 1st.  GHLA offers our adult learners the same advantages that our high school students have.  This allows students the flexibility to work during the day and study in the evenings.  By fast tracking, students can upgrade courses for entrance into college and university in a short period of time. GHLA collaborates with Community Futures and Alberta Employment and Immigration to offer counseling and career planning services in order to choose the most appropriate program.  See the Alberta Learning Information Service (ALIS) link below for more information regarding career planning.


Funding

For all adult students who wish to upgrade and complete a high school diploma, there are a few funding options. Our recommendation is to contact your local Alberta employment office. Visit the Alberta Learning Information Service (ALIS) page here for funding information.
