Secondary/Post Secondary

Lifelong Learning Series

In this competitive marketplace basic education has become the norm. It is never too late to achieve your high school diploma (OSSD) or the high school equivalency (GED).

Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD):
If you are missing just a few high school credits or many, it is worth exploring the options available for completing them. We work closely with a local school board to facilitate earning the final credits. We provide one-on-one coaching to help you achieve this goal.

The high school equivalency test (GED - General Education Development):
“Earning your Ontario High School Equivalency Certificate through the GED® test could be your first step toward changing your life for the better. Successful GED® graduates benefit from increased earnings, improved job security, enhanced career opportunities, boosted self-confidence, expanded options for skills development, apprenticeships, or college or university programs.” www.ilc.org

The GED Test is held at our location a few times a year. The testing takes place over two days and the content tests the ability to reason, put together information, and draw conclusions. It encompasses five subjects and includes one hand-written essay. We provide a comprehensive preparation course to get you ready to take on this challenging test.

Navigating Life Series

As circumstances change so do our learning needs. You may have decided to pursue a change in career or may be thinking about starting a postsecondary program. You may be thinking about switching to online banking or reworking your budgets. Digital technology keeps changing and you may wish to brush up on your skills. This flexible series is designed to include many of these elements.

Over the years I have tried many times to complete my high school. Nothing worked. I loved coming to Literacy Alliance of West Nipissing. The team is very caring and
supportive. They let me decide how I wanted to learn. They kept encouraging me and when life seemed too difficult they helped me get through things. I have graduated, and I am so happy.
