Adult & Continuing Education – Adult Dual Credit Program

Adult & Continuing Education – Adult Dual Credit Program

By Dennisha Powell – Student, Brian J. Fleming Adult Learning Centre, DPCDSB

Beginning this journey back to school has been a long one, and has not been easy. I dropped out of school in my teen years.  When I decided to go back to finish my education, Dufferin Peel Catholic School board’s Co-Op class gave me the opportunity to earn my remaining high school credits. While I was attending there, an opportunity came up for me to attend an Adult Dual Credit (ADC) Program at Sheridan College. 

The Program helps students like me, who are finishing their high school diploma and looking to start to venture into college courses. This program helps students transition into college, awarding students both high school and college credits. It’s the perfect way to get your foot in the door and get an idea of what being in college is all about. 

I have been attending classes at Sheridan College (Hazel McCallion Campus), once a week for approximately 2 hours. The ADC course is Wellness and Healthy Living.  The majority of the course material is online, which gives me the luxury of having all my notes in one place: my laptop. Teachers not only discuss the material, but also make sure all students are caught up with the course material. No student was left behind or excluded in any way, which helped all te students thrive and succeed. 

I recommend this course. I came into this course not knowing what to expect.  I surely have not been disappointed. All of my teachers at Brian J. Fleming ALC and Sheridan have done everything they can to try to get me through my first college experience. They also have lovely people at Sheridan speaking to students about how they can expand their knowledge, and how they can use all their resources to help you do your best, always.
