Continuing Education and Alternative Schools Admissions

Many of Renfrew County District School Board (RCDSB)'s continuing education and alternative learning programs accept registrations on a continuous intake basis. Our Adult High School Diploma program accepts new registrations every six weeks.

Secondary school principals may refer students currently enrolled in school to register for the program for alternative learning. After the referral, an intake interview with the student, parent/guardian, a representative of the Student Success team and the principal (or designate) of Continuing Education takes place to discuss the student's placement in the program. Individuals not currently enrolled in a secondary school must make arrangements to meet with the principal of the Continuing and Community Education Department. In some cases, students are assessed to determine their literacy skills.
