Frequently Asked Questions

How do I apply?2024-05-06T21:43:54+00:00

Click here! To apply, you will need to create a MySchool Account. Emails from MySchool may end up in your junk folder, so please check there.

Can I do the program part-time?2024-05-06T21:43:14+00:00

The Pre-Adult 12 program is part-time (Monday, Tuesday & Friday). The Adult 12 program is full-time (Monday to Friday).

Why do I have to write entrance exams?2024-05-07T00:30:32+00:00

Everyone must write the entrance tests. These tests help us figure out the best starting point for you to begin your education with us. There is no need to study for these tests. While our Adult 12 program is taught by our amazing teachers, not everyone who applies is ready to jump right in. Depending on when a person left school, and how long a person has been out of school plays a big part in where a person will start. Think of the Pre-Adult 12 part of the program like doing grades 10 and 11 before jumping right into grade 12!

If you are ready to take the next step, then it is time to apply!

Hear From Our Graduates

“I have gained so much knowledge and self-confidence being here at Ignite. Though my time here is ending, I will always remember Ignite as a place of learning, not only about school, Indigenous studies, and about addictions, but mostly about myself. A year ago, graduating high school did not seem like a strong possibility for me because anxiety always got the best of me, and I thought I would never be smart enough to pass a single test. Coming to Ignite has changed my life in so many ways, and I will be forever grateful to the staff who taught me and gave me the support I needed to help me graduate.”

“Ignite made me feel more confident in myself, and it also made me want to succeed in life.”

“Ignite taught me how to set boundaries, deal with addictions and control my mental health.”
