I’ve heard of PLAR. What is it?
PLAR is a process by which we can assess your previous learning. It stands for Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition. We assess your learning from out of Province/Country, as well as help you to earn your grade 9 and 10 credits through a series of assessment tests. PLAR also recognizes learning from sources other than educational institutions. To have a PLAR assessment completed, you must be enrolled as a student at the school.
How old do I have to be to attend Adult and Continuing Education programs?
For day school programs, you must be 18 years of age before the first day of classes.

If you are not attending an adolescent day school, you must be 16 years of age to attend night school. For self study courses, you must be at least 18 years of age.
