Senior High School Program

Our Senior High School Program aims to develop both skill and academic mastery within the young adult. Our immersive approach gives the student the opportunity to be mentored closely by a practitioner. The student will be equipped with higher level thinking skills (critical-thinking, analytical skills, and problem-solving) and the capacity to apply what they know in order to create good change and make things happen.

Our SHS Program has six strands that students can choose from. The modules offered under these strands are open not only to HEDCen students but also to adults and other individuals as well. These may be taken as independent classes and will merit course certificate. All strands are approved by the Department of Education and provide the foundational preparation which makes them eligible to enter any college program.
