Every student is unique and there are several ways to earn credit toward completing a K-12 education – consider some of the flexible options.
Adult learners There are two different graduation programs that lead to a graduation certificate from the Kindergarten to Grade 12 system:
- Certificate of Graduation (Dogwood Diploma)
Secondary school graduation for most students in B.C. comes after acquiring 80 credits.
- Adult Graduation Diploma Program
Learners who are 18 years of age or older can combine credits earned at both secondary and post-secondary schools towards either a B.C. Adult Graduation Diploma (Adult Dogwood) or a regular B.C. Dogwood Diploma.
Instead of graduation, students can achieve their educational goals through:
- School Completion Certificate Program (Evergreen Certificate)
Students who are successful in meeting their individual educational program goals are awarded this certificate.
