Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Adult 12 diploma?2024-05-07T00:11:55+00:00

An Adult 12 diploma is a grade 12 diploma for adult learners. As adults, you only need to complete 7 classes (credits) instead of the 24 credits expected of high school students. Post-secondary programs recognize it as a grade 12 diploma.

What happened to the GED?2024-05-07T00:12:01+00:00

The GED was used as a high school equivalency in Canada until May 3, 2024. Canada did not renew the contract with the American company Pearson VUE that owns the GED and, as a result, Canadians can no longer get a GED.

Can I do the program online from home?2024-05-07T00:28:15+00:00

No. Our programs are in-person only.

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.”
