"Today many jobs demand a Grade 12 education as a minimum. Since there are still too many Islanders who don't have a high school diploma, we want to help them to outfit themselves for a better job," said Colette Aucoin, Vice-President of Collège de l'Île
Collège de l'Île assesses each student's academic level and offers him or her the support and coaching needed to succeed. Students often work on their Grade 12 at their own pace, but they may also take courses in the classroom and do practical projects in order to get their high school diploma or to pass the GED exams.
Students also receive coaching from staff at L'ARC, the resource centre at Collège de l'Île L'ARC is a place where students can work with a tutor, one-on-one or in small groups, to improve their reading, writing and math skills. Sessions take place in person at the centre in Wellington, remotely by videoconference, or over the Internet. Students also receive help with applying for jobs or getting into the college programs of their choice.
The course will be taught in French, but GED candidates may write the exam in French or in English, whichever language they are more comfortable in.
Collège de l'Île is the only postsecondary French-language institution in Prince Edward Island. With three learning centres in DeBlois, Wellington and Charlottetown, the College offers regular programs, customized training and training based on labour market needs. It offers a stimulating, student-focused learning environment that uses cutting-edge technology.
