If your goal is to obtain your Grade 12 diploma, there are two unique paths to consider:


Grade 12

Students of any age can complete their Grade 12 graduation requirements by completing 24 specific credits prescribed by the Ministry of Saskatchewan.

With more than 120 core and elective courses from Grade 10-12, we can help students complete high school and obtain their Grade 12 diploma.

Prerequisites apply.

Adult 12 Program

The Adult 12 Program provides an opportunity to complete a high school education in a shorter period of time; this is different than a GED, which we do not offer. While additional prerequisites may still be required by some post-secondary institutions, an Adult 12 standing will open doors at a number of technical and trade schools, apprenticeship programs and some university programs.

Learners must complete 7 specific credits:


ELA A30
ELA B30
Canadian Studies 30
Math 20 or 30
Science 20 or 30
2 - 30 level electives



High school prerequisites are waived for those that choose this path.



You may choose to take any of these courses online through Sun West DLC or simply challenge the departmental examination (link to Ministry of Ed pg) to obtain your Adult 12 Diploma.

Let us help you figure it out!


This is a big decision and we encourage you to give us a call to learn more. Our Credit Counsellors would be happy to walk you through all of the considerations around obtaining your Grade 12 diploma. We're here to help.

If you are looking to move onto post-secondary, be sure to explore our Dual Credit options. Working in partnership with Saskatchewan Polytechnic and the University of Saskatchewan, we can help learners enrolled in these courses to earn high school and post secondary credits at the same time.
