Recognized throughout North America, the GED Testing Program has served as a bridge to education and employment. The GED Tests provide a reliable vehicle through which adults can certify that they possess the major and lasting outcomes of a traditional high school education.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic, and Dumont Technical Insitute (DTI) offer a variety of literacy and academic studies programs that can help adults earn the certificate they need to get the jobs or the training they want.

Adult 12 Program

Saskatchewan Polytechnic offers an Adult 12 program that provides adult learners with the same Grade 12 standing as students who graduate from Saskatchewan high schools. The program is designed to help adults obtain a Grade 12 credential that is recognized by employers and all post-secondary institutions. To obtain a Grade 12 standing in the Adult 12 program, you will need seven 30-level credits. Credits required include:

English A 30
English B 30
Math at the 30 level
Science at the 30 level

One of:

Social Studies at the 30 level
History 30
Native Studies 30
Two electives, which may include a journeyperson certificate.
The courses you choose will depend on what you want to do after graduation. You may be able to enroll in the Adult 12 program without completing Grade 11. Information from lower level courses has been built into the Adult 12 program to help adult learners successfully complete the program.

You can also take Adult 12 from regular high schools or through the Correpsondence School. However, these courses may not cover information from earlier grades. If you have obtained 30-level credits through the K-12 system, you may be able to transfer credits to the Adult 12 program.
