Student Feedback:

"I finished high school without knowing what I wanted to do in post-secondary.  DCDSB adult education gave me an opportunity to upgrade and take my prerequisite courses.  With my supportive teachers, counsellors and staff, I was able to get into University.  My message to students is to persevere, always remember your goal, and make it your inspiration."  -John B.
