Academic and Career Preparation

In Academic and Career Preparation students of all backgrounds and abilities participate in the University experience while upgrading their skills in English, math, and science.

Students may begin improving their skills from any level—whether they are new to reading, writing or math, just need to upgrade some of their skills, or only need a few courses to complete their Adult Graduate Diploma.

Academic and Career Preparation students can choose from a variety of pathways to assist them in reaching their goals: writing labs, individualized self-paced programs, partially online courses, and university-style semester courses. As well as improving their skills in English, math, and the sciences, students learn how to think critically, and develop study skills, time-management skills, and self-discipline. In Academic and Career Preparation, students prepare themselves to succeed in other KPU programs and beyond.

This program offers math, science and English courses for students pursuing a BC Adult Graduation Diploma or for those students trying to meet prerequisites for university diploma and degree programs.
