How to Register a Student for Continuing Education (18 years of age or and older)

Continuing Education is a unique learning program at the Renfrew County District School Board (RCDSB). With multiple sites and pathways, it provides opportunities for students to experience a successful transition to five different destinations: high school diploma, employment, post-secondary, apprenticeship, and independence. Using a progression from International Languages/ESL, many upgrading programs through Literacy Basic Skills, and a variety of credit programs taught in-person (Arnprior, Renfrew, Pembroke or Petawawa), on-line or by correspondence, students have the flexibility to achieve their goals in timelines that work best for them.

For further registration information, please contact the Continuing Education department at 613-735-0151, ext. 3325.
