Lord Selkirk Learning Centre is a registered adult learning
centre with a mandate to provide high school credit courses
for adults. We offer a mature student program that allows
students to graduate with fewer courses than regular students.
As well, we offer courses to students who require prerequisites
for post secondary admission.
students complete an assessment in order to determine academic
readiness and then a learning plan is developed. If
a students needs go beyond the scope of the Lord Selkirk Learning
Centre, referrals are made. For example, if a student requires
some assistance with career exploration, we will connect that
person with Job Quest - Career Services.
of our core subjects such as Math and English are delivered
as classroom instructed courses. These courses are offered
on a once per week basis and are available during the day
or evening. Courses are offered in two semesters, the
first starting in September and the other starting in February.
While it is possible to complete a mature student program
by taking only teacher led courses, some courses are only
available in an independent format. In this situation, students
do most of the work on their own and consult with our teachers
on an as need basis.
order to start on a mature student program, learners must
be at least 19 years of age and out of school.
