Dual Credit Adult High School Program

The Dual Credit Adult High School Program pathway is designed for students who ‘age out’ at 19 years of age from the BC high school system, but who have not completed all of the requirements to graduate before that time. International students who plan to graduate from high school in BC are often placed one or more grades lower in English compared to their over grade level based on their age (for example, a grade 12 student is often placed in English 10 or 11, sometimes even lower). As a result, many international students struggle to catch up and complete their English/Communications 12 requirement before they turn 19 and have to leave the high school system without graduating. Our program is the perfect solution for students in this situation, and allows them to complete outstanding high school course requirements to earn their Adult Dogwood Diploma while also earning some post-secondary level credit at the same time.

The program has two options:

BC Dogwood Diploma Program (Regular 'Dogwood' Diploma)

Adult students can complete their regular BC Dogwood Diploma while earning university transfer credit. To graduate from the program, students are required to complete a total of at least 80 credits, which must include 48 credits of required coursework, 28 credits of electives, and 3 credits of Graduation Transitions.

Program requirements can be viewed at www2.gov.bc.ca/gov.content/education-training/administration/legislation-policy/public-schoools/graduation-requirements
