Obtain your high school diploma with us

The Diversified Basic Education (DBE) program is an adaptation for adult learners of the Québec Education Program, Secondary Cycle Two, for the youth sector.

Thus, the subject areas, broad areas of learning and cross-curricular competencies in both programs are the same. However, in order to meet the specific needs of adult learners, the division into courses is different and some programs of study are found only in adult education.

Our Centre offers a complete range of traditionally taught and individualized academic courses leading to a Secondary School diploma (SSD).

We also offer pre-requisite courses that students need in order to enroll in a vocational program or CEGEP.

Courses offered

Mathematics (Sec 1-5), English (Sec 1-5), French (Sec 1-5), History of Quebec and Canada, Science and Technology, Physics, Chemistry, and Options classes

Students who have studied in Canada will have their transcripts evaluated by our Academic Advisor. Once the assessment is complete the student will know exactly what they require in order to graduate, go to CEGEP or to enroll in a vocational centre.
