Upgrade your education; prepare for your future

Our University prep courses give you the opportunity to meet admission requirements for post-secondary studies. If you're missing a grade 12 course, or need to improve a grade for admission to college or university, our courses should be your first choice.  

Taught by our area's leading high school instructors, our programs will support you in building an academic foundation for your academic journey, and will prepare you to learn for a lifetime

Adult Learning Advisor

Many people take time for work and life experience between high school and post-secondary education. Our advisor supports mature students who are returning to formal learning. Email extend@smu.ca or call 902-420-5492 to get started.

If you have not graduated from high school, or have obtained a GED, please contact us before you register for any University Prep classes, to discuss available options for continuing your learning.

Mature student scholarships

We offer several scholarships for students who have completed University Prep courses and are now enrolled in a degree or certificate program at Saint Mary's University.
