Quick Launch

Adult Day School
Adult Day School

The Dr. Bette Stephenson Centre for Learning, (36 Regatta Avenue, Richmond Hill) is a place that gives adults the opportunity to return to school to pursue academic goals. 

The Adult Day School operates on a quadmester system, five days a week. There are four entry points per year to allow students ample opportunity and flexibility to join classes based on their work and/or family schedules. A maximum of two courses are taken per quadmester, giving students time to focus on a limited number of subjects, including ESL.

  • Students over the age of 21 will need to provide documentation to support prior schooling i.e. transcript

Adult Day School Adaptive Model

To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, Continuing Education Services is adjusting its Adult Day School to an adaptive delivery model to align with public health guidelines.  We will continue to follow Ministry direction and if there are any changes to our program format we will communicate those changes to the system.​

Quad 2 starts Tuesday November 24, 2020 and ends Friday February 5, 2021 .
The morning class will run from 9:00 am to 11:30 am and the afternoon class will run from 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm. Students will be required to attend class each day for the entire class. 
Students registered in morning classes will be placed into cohorts of 15 students and will attend school face-to-face on alternating days.  When not attending face-to-face, students will be required to attend virtually.
Afternoon classes will be held online live in real-time with the entire class and the teacher each day.
