High School Upgrading


Chinook Learning Services is the Calgary Board of Education's provider of in-person high school upgrading and completion. Students come to Chinook to:

  • Complete a high school diploma.
  • Increase competitive average and / or deepen curricular understanding as a bridge to post-secondary.
  • Upgrade to a higher academic stream.
  • Learn in an inclusive, adult environment.

Students who are under 19 years of age and have not completed three years of high school are not permitted to register with Chinook Learning Services for Fall or Winter semesters. Daytime courses are available to students 19 years of age or younger as of September 1 of the current school year. Evening courses are open to all adult learners.
