Our courses are suited for students who have a facility with the English language as well as students still learning or wanting to learn English. We have classroom courses on a semester basis with classes beginning in September or February that meet twice a week.
All students will be required to complete an assessment to find out the current level of English. Our academic advisor will then suggest what course would be best for you to succeed.
Students completing the Adult Dogwood Graduation program are encouraged to take Composition 11 or English Studies 12 ahead of any other grade 12 level English courses.
