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. 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.

Students ages 18 to 20 (non-graduates with 20 or more secondary credits) required to submit a Recommendation to Attend form (PDF) that has been completed by the home school in order to register.
