Adult high schools


Adult high schools are full-time programs some with terms beginning in September, November, January, and March. Some schools offer evening programs. 

If you do not have your high school diploma, you do not have to pay tuition. 

This high school is different.  The classes are smaller, extra help is available and you are studying with adults.



Classes are free of charge for adults 19 years or older who have been out of the regular school system for at least one year. (Note: Non-Canadian residents may be subject to additional fees set by the NSSAL Service Provider.)


Registration is twice a year - September and January.
