Academic and Core Skills Program
The Academic Upgrading Program is an individualized program that focuses on five goal paths: Apprenticeship, Secondary School, Post-Secondary, Employment, and Independence. Each learner will be involved in assessments, mastering task-based activities, demonstrating progress, completing a culminating task, and transitioning toward his/her goal within a given timeline. Our mission is to promote and enhance personal growth for lifelong learners to use at home, at work, and in the community through academic and employment-related skills in an adult-centered environment.
