Welcome to Sunrise Adult Learning Centres Program!           

We pride ourselves on being an inclusive, student centered option for adults who want to go back to school to obtain their High School Diploma, upgrade to attend post-secondary, or to improve job prospects.

You can get your Grade 12 with as few as 8 credits!  The Mature Student High School Diploma program requires you to take:

  •  4 Grade 12 subjects, Math and English are compulsory
  •   4 other high school credits

Take our courses online, via email, or paper based.  Once completed you can graduate anytime during the year.  No waiting until June to get your diploma!

It is important that we have a strong presence in rural eastern Manitoba, as such, our four physical sites are Springfield Adult Learning Centre in Oakbank, Agassiz Adult Education Centre in Beausejour, New Directions School in Lac du Bonnet, and Empower Adult Education Centre in Powerview-Pine Falls. We support all adult learners who live in the catchment area, as well as across the entire province of Manitoba.

Thank you for taking the time to consider Sunrise Adult Learning Centres Program.  Our professional staff are very welcoming and happy to support you in achieving your educational goals.  We are looking forward to speaking with you and answering any questions that you may have.

Happy learning!
