Adult Basic Education
Admission and Administration Requirements

Students will be assessed for placement upon entry.

This program can be a stepping-stone for those interested in pursuing post-secondary education.  The Adult Basic Education programs level II & III offer assistance to adult students who would like to improve their reading, writing and math skills to help them obtain a grade 12 equivalency diploma.  This will assist the student in many ways including boosting their self-confidence and making it easier to get a job.

Some people may need to begin with the Basic Literacy/ABE Level I component.  Level I will provide a student with a learning foundation, which will help them move toward the completion of ABE and into post-secondary training.

The relaxed learning environment provided by Keyin College is the ideal atmosphere for adult students who wish to re-enter the education system and acquire their high school diploma.

ABE Graduate
I recently received my diploma from the Adult Basic Education (ABE) program at Keyin College. I dropped out of high school for personal reasons and always wanted to go back, but felt that it was too late. So, after 23 years I realized that it was my time to shine. It was also a dream of my mom's, that I graduate high school, and it was a very proud moment for me to show her my diploma. Now that I have completed the ABE program, I can move on to the next step, the Personal Care Attendant program, also at Keyin College. I learned a lot, but most important no matter how old you are it's never too late. Thank you to the instructors and staff at Keyin College.
