Introduction

Alberta’s future prosperity rests on our ability to support a well-educated workforce that is responsive to change. Among the key priorities of the provincial education system is to ensure all of our students are successful – both in school, work and life.

Completing high school is the first step to getting the skills and background needed to help secure a positive future in post-secondary education or in the workforce.

For most jobs in Alberta, a minimum of a high school diploma or a high school equivalency diploma is required. To be accepted into many post-secondary programs, specific high school or high school equivalent courses are required.

Schools across Alberta offer a number of different ways for students to complete high school. Learn more in Graduation requirements, credentials and credits.
