Continuing Education

Continuing Education is a unique learning program at the Renfrew County District School Board (RCDSB). With multiple sites and pathways, it provides opportunities for students to experience a successful transition to five different destinations: high school diploma, employment, post-secondary, apprenticeship, and independence. Using a progression from International Languages/ESL, many upgrading programs through Literacy Basic Skills, and a variety of credit programs taught in-person (Arnprior, Renfrew, Pembroke or Petawawa), on-line or by correspondence, students have the flexibility to achieve their goals in timelines that work best for them.
