Schools Closed to Students

The Ministry of Education has announced that all schools will remain closed to students beginning April 19. Please do not send your child to school. Remote learning will continue during this closure.

Adult Day School

The Dr. Bette Stephenson Centre for Learning, (36 Regatta Avenue, Richmond Hill) is a place that gives adults the opportunity to return to school to pursue the goal/s they originally set out for themselves. Students ages 18 to 20 (non-graduates with 20 or more secondary credits) require a completed Recommendation to Attend form in order to register.

Our students are very successful, many going on to University/College or upgrading themselves to a level that allows them to obtain the career they desire. All courses are credit programs and count towards an Ontario Secondary School Diploma.

The Adult Day School operates on a quadmester system, five days a week. There are four entry points per year to allow students ample opportunity and flexibility to join classes based on their work/family schedules. A maximum of two courses are taken per quadmester, giving students time to focus on a limited number of subjects, including ESL.

 

Adult Day School Adaptive Model

To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, Continuing Education Services is adjusting its Adult Day School delivery model. 
 

Quad 4 starts Thursday April 22, 2021  and ends Wednesday June 23, 2021.

The morning class will run from 9:00-11:30 a.m. and the afternoon class will run from 1:00-3:30 p.m. 

Classes will be held online live in real-time with the entire class and the teacher. Students are expected to attend class every day.
